Women's History Month

Each March, the Women's Center and numerous partners and co-sponsors host a variety of events and programs across campus. The full calendar of events will be available in February 2018!

The Politics of Black Women's Hair Symposium

The Politics of Black Women's Hair Symposium focuses on the ways in which black is treated, politicized, and devalued in American Culture. Each year we feature both a professional and student panel to speak about issues black women (and men) face concerning their hair. In addition, we feature a keynote speaker and a hair care expo.

Feminist Film Series

Each month throughout the academic school year the Women's Center hosts a different film covering a different topic.

RU NICE

Negotiating Intergender Communities and Equity (NICE) exists to build collaborative communities amongst students, faculty, and staff of all genders. This program aims to empower individuals to be true to themselves while working toward gender equity, respecting political differences, and celebrating people for who they are.

Women of Color Collective

Women of Color Collective (WCC) aims to build community among women of color on Rowan’s campus through guided conversations that aim to make meaning of their intersecting identities. Through WCC, women of color will gain a network of women to share their stories and provide support for frustrations and successes they experience in their lives.

RU MAN

Rowan University Men’s Action Network (RU-MAN) invites self-identified men to meet for lunch conversations on manhood, masculinity, and issues of physical and sexual violence. Come talk about how narrow conceptions of masculinity are implicated in instances of violence and learn how to act as advocates toward ending assault!

Patchwork

Patchwork is a space where self-identified women can come together to express and discuss the ways in which women navigate their gender and other identities on Rowan’s campus. Together, we will talk about our experiences as women, as well as members of other various identity groups, and how our presence as women impact our community, our nation, and our world. Through open/safe/inclusive-facilitated conversation on various topics pertaining to women, individuals can speak on gaining a safe space, as well as a network/support group. This conversational space is for you to express yourself freely, and share your experiences whatever they may be.

Women in the Arts Festival

Each October, the Women's Center Presents our Annual Women in the Arts Festival at Rowan University which features food trucks, sidewalk chalk artists, student performances, a photo booth, public art stations, free live music, slam poetry, and much more! Check back for updates!

Each year dozens of individuals are murdered by their intimate partners in New Jersey. Join the Women's Center in SJICR at Rowan University in raising awareness about issues of domestic violence that we face right here in our own communities. The 2017 Silent Witness Program will take place on October 2nd at 6:00 pm with a Keynote speaker. Location TBD.
