The Mission of the WCC

​The Women's Community Center exists to facilitate growth and engagement for Stanford students around issues of gender, equity, identity, and justice. We do this by building community and providing innovative opportunities to explore scholarship, leadership, and activism. Our approach is inclusive, intersectional, and welcoming of people of any gender, background, or level of prior engagement with these issues.

The WCC Space

Welcome to the WCC! Since the pandemic, our team has been working very hard to shift and restructure our space to better suit the needs of our students and community while also continuing to prioritize the safety, health, and wellbeing of the most marginalized. The Women's Community Center is located at 433 Santa Teresa Street, on the first floor of the Fire Truck House.
