Take a look at the services The Women’s Center has to offer!
The Women’s Center is an inclusive and safer space where ALL are welcome to hang out, have some great discussion, or indulge in coffee and tea!
Programs & Events
Throughout the year, the Women’s Center organizes events, workshops, and hosts speakers to enrich your college experience. We sponsor educational campaigns on a variety of issues such as body image, relationship violence, masculinity discussions, LGBTQ+ resources, and more. We also offer assistance to RAs/CAs and all student clubs and organizations in designing programs. Let us know what programs you would like to see, or better yet, let us help you plan one!
The director, graduate assistant and student staff serve as advocates for all students, faculty and staff in regard to discrimination, harassment, assault, or violence prevention. Our professional staff and student staff provide private assistance and support all individuals in filing a complaint or utilizing the college judicial/grievance system.
Crisis Intervention & Peer Listening
The Women’s Center provides peer listening for anyone in need of assistance with a crisis, problem, or issue. The director or a peer who works within the Women’s Center will listen and discuss any concerns you may have with support. We are here to identify options and provide any information or referrals you may need.
Please note: The Women’s Center student staff and services are not confidential resources. However, the center serves as a private resource (any information shared with the student staff will only be shared with necessary parties). Any student seeking confidential assistance should call Counseling Services [link] at x7522 (8:30am – 4:30pm, Monday – Friday) or an Emergency On Call Counselor at x6666 to contact a confidential counselor after hours.
The Women’s Center offers a small collection of literature and DVDs on varying social justice issues that can be used inside the center during office hours or can be checked out to be used for class projects or assignments.

Ramapo College seeks to provide a living environment welcoming to all gender identities; one not limited by the traditional gender binary. Gender Inclusive Housing allows for same-gender, opposite-gender or other-gender identities to live together regardless of biological sex. This provides a living/learning environment where residents can learn about and explore gender identity and expression in a supportive environment.
The Women’s Center offers presentations on a variety of topics in conjunction with other campus organizations. Some topics are, but not limited to: Healthy Love Party, Queer 101 Presentations, Women’s Center 101, Defining Diversity, Redefining Masculinity, and Body Image Workshop.
