As part of the Office of the Dean of Students, the Margaret Cuninggim Women’s Center welcomes all members of the Vanderbilt community to take part in our events and resources related to women’s and gender topics.
Our Gender Matters program offers co-curricular programming aimed to increase awareness of the influence that gender has in our lives; in addition, Gender Matters provides individual support and advocacy around a variety of issues, including gender stereotyping, gender equity, body image, eating disorders, pregnancy and reproduction, sexual health, and more.
Project Safe is a support and resource referral hub for those affected by power-based personal violence (sexual assault, partner violence, stalking, and bias-related violence). Through the Green Dot violence prevention campaign, we also coordinate a campus-wide effort to involve all members of the Vanderbilt community in creating a safer campus.
In addition, the Women’s Center houses resources related to gender issues and produces Women’s VU, a magazine that foregrounds women at Vanderbilt and highlights contributions made for and by women and their allies.
The Women’s Center is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, please call (615) 322-4843.
