About the Center
The XU Women’s Center has a history of providing programming and resources to support women students, faculty, and staff. In 1972 Xavier University opened Breen Lodge, its first Educational Resource Center for women. Since then, the Center has expanded its focus to provide inclusive programming and services geared towards men and women. The XU Women's Center promotes an understanding of the role and impact of gender and other barriers that inhibit full inclusion and equality in society. We are committed to insuring an informed and just community for women through advocacy, education and research.
