Mission Statement

The Women's Center (WC) is an advocacy collaborative focused on women and gender issues. It provides the Boston College community with a forum to discuss contemporary social topics through empowering educational programs; nurturing peer-to-peer support groups; and outreach awareness campaigns.



    The Women’s Center (WC) was founded in 1973 to support, educate, and empower women and men in the full attainment of their intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual goals through a wide variety of services and programs.

    The very passionate staff of the WC consists of a full-time director, three graduate assistants, and eight undergraduate students who are committed to assisting students in their journey at Boston College. The WC is located in McElroy 141 and is open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm each weekday throughout the academic year.

    The Women’s Center is part of The Office of Health Promotion, which directs programs and services that foster the health and well-being of all members of the Boston College community. The Health Promotion team is comprised of health educators and student volunteers who work collaboratively to advance healthy living habits on campus.

       The Women's Center is open to all students, faculty, and staff, offers a comfortable atmosphere to seek information, to participate in programming, and to find peer support. For more information, call 617-552-3489 or e-mail




Throughout the years, the WC has continued to offer programming and remain a safe space for all students on campus. Visit a comprehensive archive of past photos, flyers, and articles about the WC here.
