Mission Statement

The CLC Women’s Outreach and Programs supports special student populations, including single mothers, returning students, displaced homemakers, nontraditional career seekers, survivors of sexual assault, stalking and dating and domestic violence, women in cultural transition and LGBTQ+ individuals. We offer a safe, caring place where students can come to access services and support to achieve success at college, work, and in their everyday lives.

Vision Statement

The CLC Women’s Outreach and Programs is dedicated to the success of CLC students, regardless of their personal and financial circumstances.


CLC Partners

The Women’s Outreach and Programs collaborates with many other college departments and student groups, as well as with community organizations and businesses we seek to make an extensive set of services and programs for our students.

The Women’s Outreach and Programs is part of the CLC Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Team, a coordinated community response committee that assists the college in responding to sexual assault, stalking, domestic and dating violence. Through our ongoing awareness and prevention initiatives, we educate students, advocate for survivors, and work towards eliminating gender-based violence in our community.

Services We Offer

  • Consultations, Discussion Groups and Workshops: In our one-on-one consultations, we offer referrals to counseling and other CLC and community resources. We work close­ly with college counseling staff, advocates from local women’s organizations, and county support services. We also offer support/discussion groups.
  • Annual Drives: The Women’s Outreach and Programs sponsors annual Thanksgiving, Holiday and School Supply drives for students and their families. All drives are 100 percent funded by donations.
  • Food Pantry: The CLC SHARE Market was created to provide food and other resources to students struggling with food insecurity. It is located in B013. Donations are happily accepted as well.
  • Smart Choices Workshops: In an effort to provide our students with the tools for success, we offer several year-round workshop series that address issues relevant to our students’ lives at school, at home and in the workplace.The Women’s Outreach and Programs also sponsors and co-sponsors many other events throughout the year, such as the Women’s Empowerment Symposium, book club meetings, and the Vagina Monologues.
