The Women's Center aims to provide a safe, respectful, and supportive environment that celebrates the diversity of people and thought. A major goal is to assist in the removal of social, political, and economic barriers that women face in their daily lives. This goal is accomplished in part by offering educational programs that enhance the academic, social, and personal experiences of university community members. The Women’s Center advocates for positive personal and societal changes to enhance quality of life. Through continued involvement with various UND departments, the Women’s Center also takes an active role in university programming and policy evaluation and development.

Originating in 1908, Ella Fulton, the Dean of Women, created the Women’s League. The major role of this League was to teach women how to dress, act, speak and behave. As society advanced, so did the goals and needs of the students. The creation of the Women’s Center at UND (1974) institutionalized support for women, creating accountability for learning and work environments wherein all people can succeed. Since that time, focus has expanded in response to universal equity issues: educational opportunity, campus climate, sexual orientation/identity, advancement of research, violence against women, and other issues of equity, diversity and intersectionality. Always meeting students where they are, both academically and developmentally, the Women’s Center’s services help students succeed by offering educational programming, advocacy, eliminating barriers, and promoting diversity through shared responsibility. The Women’s Center utilizes up to date research and evidence based practices to foster critical thinking skills and encourage students to grow in their understanding of themselves as learners and leaders.
