Center for Gender Equity

The Center for Gender Equity promotes dialogue, programming, service, research, education and advocacy to support gender equity at Pacific University and in its neighboring communities. The center offers the following.

  • Academics, including a minor in gender and sexuality studies
  • Programming, such as speakers, plays and workshops
  • Advocacy activities supporting marriage equality, HIV/AIDS prevention and research, and an end to sexual assault and domestic violence
  • Service, including camps and workshops for youth, minorities and women in the community

The Center for Gender Equity (CGE) is open to everyone on Pacific University’s campuses and in the community, regardless of gender. We seek opportunities to cooperate with any group, as long as that collaboration furthers the mission of CGE. Services and programming reach out to all genders.
