Location: Scott Hall 127

Fall Semester 2021 Hours: Monday-Thursday 11am-5pm, Friday 11am-2pm

Support Services

We provide support services and a sense of connection and belonging to Pacific students, focusing specifically on issues of sex and gender.

Education

We provide educational programming to the campus and wider community on issues related to gender equity.

Activism

We strive to dismantle the systems of oppression that perpetuate gender inequity through coalition building and collective action.

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.
