Services at the Center

Services are offered in 3 main areas: Education, Support and Referrals.


The classes, workshops, and seminars offered at the Women's Center are designed to address issues of concern to women.

Seminar and workshop topics range from self-defense to personal health and from spirituality to political issues. The Women's Center is dedicated to bringing well known speakers to address contemporary issues facing CSUN's women. Most programs and events are academically co-sponsored by the Women's Studies Department.

The Women's Center also houses a library which provides an informal atmosphere for studying, socializing and relaxing.

Informal peer support is always available at the Women's Center. Support and discussion groups offer valuable forums for personal growth and exploration in such topics as sexuality, self-esteem and body image, health and feminist spirituality. New groups form as interest develops. Suggestions are always welcome.


The Women's Center maintains an extensive referral file for the campus and community. This resource is available on a phone-in or walk-in basis. The file encompasses a wide range of local practitioners, agencies and organizations specializing in such areas of concern as women's health, drug and alcohol abuse, counseling and legal aid.

Each semester, the Women's Center hosts an Open House. Events are planned throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. In March, the Women's Center sponsors Women's History Month with a series of events celebrating women from diverse perspectives.

The Women's Resource & Research Center thrives because of the students who volunteer there and staff the positions available. Please contact the Director or Assistant Director of the Center to participate.
