Center for Gender Equity (CGE)


Dear Friend:

We would like to invite you to a breakfast in support of the Center for Gender Equity (CGE).  In addition to learning about CGE projects this year, you will be treated to a wonderful meal, passionate student speakers, and some highlights of our university, community and global projects. 

The mission of CGE is to support gender equity through dialogue, programming, service, research, education, and advocacy in order to facilitate collaborative, humane, and sustainable University, local and global communities.  CGE provides Pacific University with regular programming on important issues and support for women, men, and LGBTQ students, faculty and staff.  In addition, CGE has sponsored several high profile projects for the community: Girls Today, “It’s a Guy Thing,” annual displays of the AIDS quilt, work with the Latina community, “Take Back the Night” marches, Guerrilla Girls and presentations of The “Vagina Monologues” and “The Laramie Project.”  CGE also organizes service-learning travel experiences for our students and community members to southern India and South Africa.  For a full description of CGE initiatives see our website at

We would like you to consider making a commitment to the values that the Center for Gender Equity actualizes by sharing a breakfast with fellow-supporters and making a donation. Your gift is tax-deductible and will allow CGE to continue to develop programming in support of gender equity.

There will be a raffle at the breakfast, so bring your pennies!  One of the items is a $100.00 gift certificate to any of the McMenamins.

Thanks for your continued support!
