The Womencenter

is a college program providing resources for students and area women. Our purpose is to help empower women through the development of educational and supportive programs and services for campus and community women that promote growth in both personal and political awareness.

We help women identify their personal and social needs and assist them in developing the skills to meet them through education and participation. Our programs take the form of workshops, seminars, supportive groups, conferences, peer counseling, and information, resource, and referral services.

For over 40 years, the Womencenter has offered substance and sustenance to the many women who have walked through our doors. We look forward to assisting you with your personal, career, educational, and resource needs and we welcome your referral of friends and family who can benefit from our services.

If you would like or need us to be a partner in your journey, we invite you to connect with us.

The Womencenter is housed at the Orchard Ridge Campus. Students and community members who wish to meet at one of the other OCC sites may call the Womencenter to make an appointment at their home campus or the most conveniently located campus.
