Hochberg Women's Center

The Gertrude Meth Hochberg Women’s Center is committed to enhancing the quality of life for the community of women at Bryant University by providing a forum for all students to discuss issues facing women, both on campus and in business and society.

The Center engages the campus community in meaningful discussions surrounding women’s empowerment, gender, and sexuality, and works toward full participation of women in the life of the University. Our programs, resources, and services help to support the increasing number of women-identified students on campus.

Some examples:

  • Women's HERstory Month
  • The Vagina Monologues
  • Programs raising awareness about domestic violence, sexual assault, body positivity
  • Collaboration with faculty and student organizations to strengthen co-curricular education and foster Bryant’s student-centered learning environment
  • Advocacy Helpline (401-258-4209) and on-campus advocates to provide guidance, support, and empowerment during the academic year to survivors of violence
