The mission of the Emily Taylor Center for Women & Gender Equity (ETC) at the University of Kansas is to provide leadership and advocacy in promoting gender equity and challenge gender-related barriers which impede full access, inclusion, and success. Approaching our work from a social justice lens, we practice intersectional trans-inclusive feminism to promote gender equity by raising awareness of critical issues related to gender and sexism, providing opportunities to translate awareness into action, and empowering individuals to advocate for themselves and others.
Who can use the Center?
The ETC provides services, assistance, advocacy and support to campus community members of all gender identities. We also provide consultation, information,and resources to Edwards and KUMC campus members, parents of KU students and the community by request. Appointments are recommended, but not necessary. In situations involving discrimination and violations of Title IX, ETC staff report information to campus authorities. Center programs and facilities are also accessible to individuals with disabilities.
