Want to get involved at the Emily Taylor Center for Women & Gender Equity? Become a volunteer! 

Volunteers at the Center do a wide variety of activities on campus and around the office. Volunteers have the option of working in a preferred subject, meeting new people and joining in on the fight for gender equity. Our current volunteers have done the following: 

  • Assisting, tabling and promoting events 
  • Create and manage individual programs
  • Assisting in the office 

We are very proud of our volunteers, and we acknowledge that this Center would not function the same without them. Some of our most successful programs came from the minds of volunteers. 

If you're interested in volunteering, please fill out this form and we will get back to you as soon as possible. 

We wanted to highlight some of the volunteers that have worked to do amazing things at the Center. Check them out below:
