Women’s Center

We’re here for everyone.

We serve all students, faculty, and staff by promoting the equality of all gender identities, utilizing and modeling intersectional and anti-oppression framework, and advocating for an equitable University culture and community for all.


The Women’s Center can help you make gender equity activism part of your daily routine.


Research opportunities and internships provided by the Women’s Center are invaluable.

Gender Equity Research

"The Status of Women at the University of Dayton Report Card" reflects the representation of women employees across the life of the institution. Using data collected each fall from the University's Institutional Research Office, student policy interns have an integral role in producing the annual report card, which focuses on the composition of the workforce and highlights women's representation in academic and non-academic leadership.

UD Men for Gender Equity

UD Men for Gender Equity is an opportunity for men to increase their gender equity knowledge, skills, and strategies to affect positive personal and departmental change and enhance institutional inclusive excellence. We seek to build a network of men-identified allies among the faculty and staff who will commit to taking an active role in gender equity at UD.
