Welcome to the Women's Center
The Women's Center at Shippensburg University seeks to promote equity for women by addressing issues such as sex-role stereotyping, networking, self-defense, women's health, domestic violence, and sexual assault.
All women and men (students, faculty, staff and the community) are welcome to use the Women's Center services and resources.
The Center operates under the Department of Dean of Students and Student Affairs and is staffed by a director, Stephanie Erdice, office manager, Katrina Howard, graduate assistant, Kasey Gardner, intern, Sarah Brotzman, intern, Heidi Freeland, student worker, Destiny Fales and volunteers. The Women's Center works cooperatively with the Women's Studies Minor.
Women have made much progress in expanding their horizons over the last 25 years. Both women and men continue to challenge sex-role stereotyping.
You can participate in discussion groups, volunteer opportunities, films, lectures and workshops sponsored by the Women's Center which is located in Horton Hall room 132. You can also have one on one conversations with the staff, get information about women's groups, and borrow books, videos, magazines, and pamphlets for research and class projects.
