The Jane Kopas Women’s Center serves the students, staff, and faculty of the University. The Center’s mission is threefold: (1) to offer educational programs on topics related to women, gender, and feminist theories, (2) to develop women as lifelong learners and confident leaders through skill training, educational opportunities, advocacy training, and a women’s leadership program, and (3) to encourage service through collaborative projects between the campus and Scranton communities.

The Center provides a safe and comfortable gathering place and a unique forum for discussion about the connection between academics and the feminist movement. Women and men are encouraged to utilize the print, audio, and video resources for class research and personal growth opportunities.
