    The K-State Women's Center works to promote a safe and equitable work and learning environment for women and all people through advocacy, presentations, academic classes, training, and referral. Social justice is our unifying mission for a variety of individual and community efforts. Since 1973 this office has supported the well-being of K-State women by providing advocacy and promoting gender equity. More recent initiatives involve campus culture change efforts such as nonviolence education and programs directed to men.

    We work with the K-State Campaign for Nonviolence on many justice-related projects including: the Safe Zone project, a campuswide volunteer organization created to improve reporting of sexual assault and other hateful acts and crimes, as well as to provide allies for GLBT students, faculty, and staff with concerns; noontime yoga for faculty, staff, students, and community members; and sponsorship of the Campaign for Nonviolence student activist group, whose mission is to carry out social change projects.

    We collaborate with the academic side of the university by providing two new courses taught by Women's Center staff:

    Introduction to Nonviolence Studies (DAS 450/ WOMST 500): This 3-hour class lays the groundwork for a nonviolence studies program, which is in development.

    PEERS (EDCEP 311): The PEERS (Proactive Educators for the Elimination of Rape and Sexual Violence) program is founded on the belief that students can effectively educate each other on issues concerning rape and sexual/ relationship violence. PEERS is offered as a two-semester, 3-credit seminar, providing in-depth training about the cultural, psychological, medical, criminal, and legal system aspects of sexual assault, followed by opportunities to present to organizations, living groups, and classes. Both women and men are invited to enroll. Students who enroll are eligible to join the PEERS student activist group.

    The Women's Center sexual assault advocate provides 24-hour assistance for women who have been victimized by violence or who are threatened by biased, hateful, or criminal behavior. Staff members work with individuals who are filing complaints under K-State's Policy Prohibiting Sexual Violence and with offices and agencies on and off campus who can help students with law enforcement, legal, medical, and academic concerns.
