Abby’s House is one of sixteen units within the division of Student Affairs dedicated to support the academic mission of the university. The division of Student Affairs fosters students’ academic, personal and professional growth; educates students to respect and appreciate diversity; and prepares students to be responsible and engaged citizens in a global community. In support of the University Diversity Statement, the division of Student Affairs believes that we have an obligation to create an inclusive environment that embraces social justice and acknowledges diversity as more than the presence of human difference(s). As a campus, we must establish our community as one which empowers students, faculty and staff. An inclusive environment is one in which each individual feel that they matter to the community (as a whole). Social justice is an ongoing and collaborative process which addresses the multiple levels of inequality in our society.
Abby’s House is the campus resource and referral center at Western Oregon University (WOU). The mission of Abby’s House is to provide the WOU community with educational programming, information, and referral services designed to promote equity and nonviolence. We embrace a feminist model that empowers all people to actively stand against all forms of violence, harassment, verbal abuse, discrimination, and hatred. We strive for social equality for all – including a community free of oppression, violence, and inequality. While Abby’s House is rooted in the Women’s Center tradition, we serve all students regardless of gender identity.
- Master’s Degree and professional experience working in a campus-based women’s center or equivalent center.
