The Women’s Center at Georgia College strives to create a dynamic campus community that challenges gender-based oppression through education, support, and advocacy. Utilizing a feminist and intersectional lens, we work to achieve our mission through:

Creating programming promoting healthy sexuality and relationships;
Providing opportunities for leadership development and personal empowerment;
Collaborating across campus and community for social change;
Driving power-based interpersonal violence prevention efforts at GC;
Supporting members of our campus community in times of crisis. 

The Women's Center (WC) is a place where anyone can come and find out about gender issues. We are here because we believe women should be able to live life free from fear of partner violence, sexual assault, and sexual harassment. We believe women should be paid equitably, enjoy healthy self-esteem and have confidence that comes from within. If that sounds like something you believe in, then the Women's Center is for you!

The Women's Center strives to create a warm, comfortable place for all members of the campus community to come together. With educational resources through an extensive resource library and a quaint meeting space, all are welcome any time into the WC located 530 W. Greene Street in the Smith House Basement.


Project BRAVE is a comprehensive violence prevention plan composed of a task force aimed at education, training and victim services. ProjectBRAVE is funded through a grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Justice. Through ProjectBRAVE, the Women's Center focuses on educating and training students, staff and faculty as well as partnering with the Oconee Regional Medical Center, the Milledgeville Police Department and the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office in an effort to raise awareness and increase prevention.

The Women's Center was founded in 2005 by a small group of students. Through the years the Women's Center has grown from being staffed by only an intern to now having two and a half full time staff members.
