Center for Women Students

204 Boucke Building, 863-2027

The Center for Women Students (CWS) provides advocacy, referrals, and resources to women students at Penn State. Informational materials and educational programming are available on issues including sexual assault/rape, relationship violence, sexual harassment/stalking, classroom climate, and body image.

Programs are in the form of presentations in classrooms and residence halls and for student organizations. Trained peer educators--(Peers Helping Reaffirm, Educate, and Empower (PHREE), and Men Against Violence (MAV)--are also available for facilitations. Both of these groups always welcome new members - visit their links on our website.

We are committed to serving all women in the spirit of diversity and social justice. Male students who are concerned about these issues, or who have experienced them in their own lives, are encouraged to use our services.

Our main office in 204 Boucke Building and the Resource Room in 203 are open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
