Our Mission

Pacific Lutheran University’s Center for Gender Equity supports, challenges, and empowers students, staff, and faculty to combat gender-based oppression and enact positive social change.

Our Vision

We envision a world where people of all gender identities and expressions are free to pursue their intellectual, professional, and personal goals.

Our Values

Diversity—Celebrate differences as a source of strength while understanding that privilege and oppression shape each person’s experience of the world. Consciously wrestling with the complex intersections of our identities is necessary for change.

Community—We are stronger together than separate.
Engaged Inquiry—Questioning and curiosity fosters multiple perspectives, awareness, self-reflection, and growth.

Activism—Act strategically with courage and conviction.

Advocacy—Compassionate service and care inspires hope and healing.
Sustainability—Bolster the capacity for social and cultural change.

Gender Equity—Strive for a world where every person is treated w/fairness and justice, regardless of gender identity or expression.

Leadership—Be a responsible catalyst for social justice through authentic collaboration, innovation, humility and care.
