We're here to help
The Women’s Center promotes a community that is safe and supportive for all students to celebrate their experiences, achievements and diversity. Both men and women are educated about gender-related issues, and empower everyone to make healthy lifestyle decisions and collaborate with campus and community organizations to provide information, advocacy, referrals and awareness programming on topics that are often hush-hush.
At the Women’s Center, it is our duty to educate students that sexual assault and interpersonal violence crimes can happen to anyone regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation or socioeconomic status. We want to comfort, console and support—whether an incident occurred on or off campus, recently or long ago, it’s never too late to get help.
Crisis intervention is available for any Lynn students, staff or faculty members dealing with sexual assault or any other gender-based misconduct issue.
Trained staff offer information and referrals to both on- and off-campus resources. They can help victims explore their rights and options and provide information about the civil, university and criminal justice systems to help victims make informed decisions.
The Women’s Center also offers a Confidential Student Advocate who can assist with all related issues.
