Women's Outreach

The Women's Outreach Center (WOC) serves to celebrate women's achievements, explore the role gender plays in the human experience and provide resources for women to empower themselves and each other. A fundamental part of the WOC is promoting women’s leadership and equipping those who live as women in the UCO community to advocate on behalf of gender equity.

 

American Association of University Women (AAUW)

The mission of AAUW at UCO is to promote leadership, empowerment and equity for UCO students, staff and faculty who live as women. While serving as advocates for issues that affect them on our campus and in our communities. Our programming throughout the year may focus on a number of issues but, our signature programming centers on equipping women to be politically aware, empowering women to receive the money they earn and inspiring them to thrive in college. 

All students invested in equity are welcome. Joining us as an active member and attending meetings and events is a great way to make a difference in your time here at UCO. General body meetings are held twice a month and offer a chance to learn more about the issues facing those who live as women, as well as offer resources to empower members in their advocacy for equity. For more information contact the women's outreach center.
