We are here for you!
The Women's Center is here to help students, provide leadership and empowerment, create a safe environment on campus, bring up issues others often don't get to talk about and provide resources for all students. The Women's Center is celebrating 20 Years of service and empowerment to students on the UH Hilo campus! Come and visit us, we are in Campus Center Room 312!
To accomplish our mission, we provide the following:
Student and Community events
We will hold events that include everyone, particularly those who self-identify with the LGBTQ community, students of all cultures and colors, and tailoring events to raise awareness of diversity related issues facing people today.
Educational programming on issues of women and gender that supports the university's academic mission and the general well-being of students. In order to accomplish this, the Women's Center puts on various projects. Please take a look at the Programs and Events to see what is going on this month.
