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.
