Abstract

Campus-based women’s centers can provide a wealth of resources to feminist social workers, yet little has been written about their structure and practices. This article reports on a study of 75 campus-based women’s centers in the United States during academic year 1999-2000. Responses to the portions of the survey that were devoted to the programs of these centers are summarized, with particular attention to the various means of fostering the participation of specific populations on campus. Barriers to the successful operation of women’s centers that were identified by the respondents are also discussed.
