Summary University and College Women's and Gender Equity Centers examines the new institutional contexts surrounding women's centers. It looks at the possibilities for, as well as the challenges to, advocating for gender equity in higher education, and the ways in which women's and gender equity centers contribute to and lead that work. The book first describes the landscape of women's centers in higher education and explores the structures within which the centers are situated. In doing so, the book shows the ways in which many women's centers have expanded their work to include working with athletics, Greek life, men, transgender students, international students, student parents, veterans, etc. Contributions then delve into the profession of women's center work itself, and ask how women's center work has become "professionalized?" Threats and challenges to women's and gender equity centers are also explored, as contributions look at how their expansion has helped or complicated the role of centers? The collection concludes by highlighting current successes and forward-thinking approaches in women's centers and asking how gender equity centers can best prepare for the future?Through narratives, case studies, and by offering strategies and best practice, University and College Women's and Gender Equity Centers will engage emerging and existing equity centre professionals and women's and gender studies faculty and students and help them to move the work of gender equity forward in the next decade
