The mission of the Boston College Women's Center is to cultivate a campus culture that fosters the advancement of women and inspires all students to discover and embrace their full potential.

The Women’s Center (WC) was founded in 1973 to support, educate, and empower students of all genders in an inclusive and welcoming space. Valuing personal agency and strong community, our staff works to engage Boston College students through mentoring programs, events, and conversations that cultivate leadership, authentic relationships, and awareness of intersectional social justice issues.

The passionate staff of the WC consists of a full-time director, an associate director, three graduate assistants, and eight undergraduates who are committed to assisting students in their journey at Boston College.

The Women's Center is open to all students, faculty, and staff and offers a comfortable atmosphere to seek information, to participate in programming, and to find peer support. It is located in Maloney 441 and is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. weekdays throughout the academic year.
