Women and Gender began as the RIT Women’s Center with a full time Coordinator in 1998-1999. In 1999, the US Department of Justice awarded the Women’s Center one of its new Campus Grants to Combat Violent Crimes Against Women. This provided funds to increase our staff and our services to students. We were fortunate to continue that grant for 9 years.

Our first home was in the basement of the Student Alumni Union. In 2007, the Center moved down the hall to a larger, newly renovated space, thanks to the generous support of the Davenport Hatch Foundation. In December 2009, we moved into our current space in the Campus Center.
