About Us

MISSION:  RECOGNIZING GENDER IS A KEY ELEMENT OF IDENTITY, THE CENTER FOR GENDER EQUITY CREATES GENDER EQUITY WITHIN THE LEHIGH COMMUNITY THROUGH INFORMING, ENGAGING, AND ACTION.

 

Established at Lehigh in 1991, the Center for Gender Equity continues to provide students a space for education and activism around women's and gender issues. Located in the hub of the University Center, our dynamic student staff collaborates with several departments and student organizations, including the Office of Multicultural Affairs and the Pride Center. Focusing on transferable skills and content, student staff dream up, develop, implement, and assess 90% of all the Center for Gender Equity's programs and initiatives.
