The Kent State University Women’s Center is here to support you, whether you’re a student, faculty member and staff member through advocacy and education about women, gender, and diversity. The Center offers resources that address matters of particular concern to you by providing education, information and referral programs and services.

The Sage Project is a way to recognize women-identifying students who have overcome adversity to shape their life and Kent State experience. This initiative exists to highlight current students who have diverse experiences and backgrounds. We hope these stories will inspire a wide range of students, who will in turn see that they can create their own amazing story.

  • The Women’s Center 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.

  • Mothers, Mentors and Muses is the Women’s Center's signature event that recognizes Kent State University faculty or staff who have made a significant difference in the life of a student or colleague. More than 450 individuals across the university have received this honor. 

  • Due to COVID-19 precautions, all sites of the Kent State Career Closet will be inaccessible through 2020. We are also NOT accepting donations at this time.
    The Kent State Career Closet started as an idea of a few female staff members looking for ways to give back and help students and has grown from that casual conversation to a multi-site organization, with the potential for events, pop-up shops, and more.
