Women's Center

Mission

We provide supportive services for the growth and development of women as they pursue academic and life-long goals. In addition, we provide resources and support for women to empower themselves and others. These services are available to students, alumni, faculty, staff, and the surrounding community regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, or religion. To achieve our goals we provide programs and opportunities designed to contribute to the growth and well-being of all York College students.

Goals

1. Provide Leadership & Mentoring Opportunities

We assist students in building leadership skills and accessing Mentoring/ Networking opportunities via events like leadership conferences, networking receptions and our Women of Excellence Leadership Workshop Series. 

2. Promoting Healthy Lifestyles

We educate students about women's health issues (i.e. Breast Cancer Walk, Heart Health, women's reproductive issues, etc.) via our workshops on Mind, Body & Spirit Wellness Workshops and Promoting Healthy Relationships.

3. Domestic Violence/Intimate Partner Violence Education & Awareness

We educate the college community about Domestic/ Intimate Partner Violence via our YorkSAVES Peer DV/IPV Advocacy & Awareness Program, the Domestic Violence Health Fair & Panel Discussion and HopeLine Project.

4. Provide External Resources and Referrals to Students

Through relationships with internal and external community partners, we connect York College students to the additional resources, services and support they need to be successful.
