Call 585-295-3533 (voice and text), contact the Center for Women and Gender, or go to the link on the Center for Women and Gender webpage to access this service.
Services to individual students address relationship issues, sexuality issues, pregnancy, body image issues, harassment and discrimination, and sexual assault.
Programs address issues including Healthy Relationships; Eating and Body Image; Gender, Communication and Respect; Pornography; Men’s workshops.
The Center for Women and Gender may be called upon to make presentations to your classes. Consider contacting us rather than cancel class when you are out of town or unable to teach one day.
