About Women's Transit


 


Women's Transit is a group effort between WSU's Coalition for Women Students, Women's Resource Center, CougParents program, and Center for Civic Engagement. It operates out of the Women's Resource Center in Wilson Hall Room 8 and is coordinated by one staff member who supervises student program leaders. Despite the name, Women's Transit is committed to helping students of all genders stay safe.

The primary goal of this program is to act as a resource to prevent incidents of sexual assault in the community. We believe that students who feel safe getting to and from classes, work, and social events are far more likely to succeed than students who are scared to simply live their lives while at school. We also believe that giving back to the community is incredibly important to a well-rounded education. Because of this, we give our program volunteers the opportunity to learn valuable skills in communication, crisis management, and sexual assault risk reduction.

Women's Transit has been around for more than 40 years and is an established part of WSU's campus and culture. Primarily funded by students, this program attracts nearly 200 volunteers per semester and gives over 3,300 rides per year to students, staff, and the community. Although the program is currently on hiatus, if you have questions about it, feel free to email the Women's Resource Center!
