Women’s Center Initiative Seeks to Support Black Women

The Women’s Center at Kent State University seeks to explore areas where women’s voices can be uplifted and amplified. Where Do Black Women Go? focuses on black women’s health, retention and development. Through research and collaboration, Where Do Black Women Go? addresses black women’s health through a unique, supportive environment as we seek to provide affirming spaces for black women.

The Kent State Women's Center's initiative includes topic-specific events, networking opportunities and the establishment of a Kent State community village for black women-identifying faculty, staff and students.
