Mission Statement:

The Murray State Women’s Center focuses on the promotion of gender equity and inclusion. Through advocacy, education, and resources the center works to address gender barriers and biases that hinder the health and success of Murray State students.  Our mission is to create opportunities for personal growth and development, ultimately leading to a culture of respect and an environment that is safe, equitable, and welcoming. Consistent with the goals of the university, the Women's Center works to promote a campus community that is supportive of a diverse body of students.

Bra Closet

The Women's Center added this resource in November 2018 to help meet a need that  was communicated by students working in the Center.  Students can visit the Center Monday through Thursday between 9 am and 2 pm to receive TWO FREE bras. The Women's Center also accepts donations of new or gently-used bras. Donations can be dropped off at the Women's Center during normal business hours.

Period Products

The Women's Center offers FREE period products to any student who may have a need. These are available for a one time need and  also for short term supply in cases of financial hardship. Products are available for grab and go in the Women's Center front lobby during normal business hours. Donations of period products can be dropped off at the Women's Center during normal business hours as well.

Family Room

The Family Room was opened during the Spring 2020 semester and is available for pregnant and parenting students who need a child friendly space on campus.  This space also allows for a clean, private space to meet lactation needs for the campus community. An appointment is not needed and the space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
