Center for Sexuality, Women, and Gender (SWAG)

Sexuality, Women and Gender Center cultivates a campus environment in which women and queer people feel safe, valued and supported through academic, co-curricular and personal development.  It builds awareness surrounding issues of gender and sexuality existing on campus and in the world.The co-directors and student directors collaborate with students, faculty and staff from across campus to offer diverse, relevant programming for Bowdoin community members of all genders and orientations. Some of our past and ongoing programs include: Women's swim lessons, Leadership Luncheon, Wild Women Adventures, Celebrating Women Celebrating Bodies photo exhibit, and film screenings.
