Elizabeth Ann Seton Center for Women’s Studies
The Elizabeth Ann Seton Center for Women's Studies was established in the spirit of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, whose life of activism, spirituality and leadership serves as an inspiration to our community. The Center is administered by the Women and Gender Studies Program, which also offers a minor in Women and Gender Studies. Through the Program, the Center is connected to a wide variety of university programs that are designed to foster well-informed, rigorous conversation about gender issues and social justice. Consistent with the university's commitment to preparing students for a life of servant leadership in a diverse, global environment, through the Program, the Center supports scholarship, professional training, and internships.
