At the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center, we stand with survivors of gender-based violence. The Women’s Center works to promote a supportive environment at UVA by actively engaging in discussions about social change, connecting with state and national advocacy organizations, and perhaps most importantly, by supporting the many students whose leadership among their peers is essential to bringing about a safe and healthy University community.

Our Body Positive Coordinator attends the NEDA Conference each year to improve our knowledge of the innovative programs, tools, and techniques available to promote prevention and raise awareness about eating disorders.

At the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center, we stand with students, faculty and staff who are mounting a positive response to recent racist graffiti written in UVA residence halls. An environment that welcomes and supports people of different backgrounds, beliefs, ages, identities, ethnicities and worldviews best accomplishes the goals of a modern public institution of higher education.

Just 2 years ago, the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women's Center celebrated its 25th anniversary. Now, as we welcome our interns back to Grounds and start planning for the year ahead, we are happy to mark another 25th anniversary. Claire Kaplan joined the Women's Center team 25 years ago and has committed her time and passion to social justice issues every day since. The reach of Claire's impact is far and wide, working with students, faculty, staff, and friends in the Charlottesville community, to make strides toward a more just culture on Grounds.
