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.
Scheduled for 7 p.m. Feb. 21 in the Taylor-Meade Performing Arts Center, the multimedia drag experience confronts white supremacy and the confusion of "mixed" identities, particularly sexually and racially. Tickets are $10 at the door and free for Pacific students with ID.
The Pacific University Center for Gender Equity and the American Association of University Women invite girls ages 12 through 15 to a one-day workshop on Friday, Oct. 12, 2018, to discuss diverse issues important to girls’ future and a well-rounded education.
