Support/Discussion Groups

The Women's Center plans on hosting three support and/or discussion groups beginning Fall 2013. Information forthcoming.

Empowering Women: For Female Faculty and Staff at UW Oshkosh

Tuesday's 12:00pm-1:00pm 
(during term time)

Co-facilitated by Elena Petrova, Ph.D. and M. Geneva Murray, Ph.D.

The Empowering Women group is a unique support group for female faculty and staff at UW Oshkosh.  The Women’s Center and Counseling Center hope to connect with women who would like to support one another as we face successes and adversity: working in a male dominated office, care-taking roles: balancing self-care and care for others, navigating relationships with male and female colleagues, body positivity, caring for our mental and physical health, and being assertive in both one’s personal and professional life.  The goal of the co-facilitators of this group is to bring to campus an inclusive environment for women where we can foster an open dialogue about the issues group participants find to be most important.

While this is an open group, it is limited to female staff and faculty at UW Oshkosh. Feel free to join us every week, or as your schedule allows. There is no requirement to contact us prior to attending the group; however, if you have any questions or concerns please contact Elena Petrova, Ph.D. at

Relationship Support Group

Thursdays 3:00pm-4:00pm (during term time)
Facilitated by Christine Ann Domestic Abuse Services, Inc.

This support group is for current students at UW Oshkosh who have experienced domestic or dating violence, are concerned about their relationship with their partner, or would like to discuss their past relationships and get advice. Facilitated by Christine Ann Domestic Abuse Services, this support group will be overseen by one of their advocates and will address issues of physical and emotional abuse, safety planning and healthy coping strategies. If you have any questions, please contact the Women's Center at
