Mission Statement and Mandate
The goal of the Women's Centre is to educate, sensitize and create awareness of women's issues and to work towards a more egalitarian environment for students and staff.
Through social events, open forums, protests, fund raisers, film presentations, workshops and seminars, the LUWC reaches out to all students and faculty to persevere in the eradication of harassment, discrimination, violence and racism.
The centre provides resources and referrals for everyone and offers a safe, comfortable environment for all women to seek solutions and make informed choices. The Women's Centre works to promote healthy lifestyles and choices for all women in the Laurentian community.
Who We Are:
The LUWC recognizes the diversity and uniqueness of ALL women including self-identified women. The Centre is run by volunteers who, working as a collective, have equal voices in the decisions and policies made within the Centre. We aim to work, congregate and think in unprejudiced and non-oppressive manners.
We are a not-for-profit service offered at Laurentian University whose mission is to provide information, referrals, educate, sensitize and create awareness of women's issues and to work towards a more egalitarian environment for students and staff.
