About Us

The Women’s Center at Princeton was founded in 1971 as a resource for student activism on gender-related issues. The center is committed to fostering student leadership; facilitating mentorship between and among students, staff, faculty and alumnae; and creating opportunities for dynamic discussion on a range of topics.

The center is located on the second floor of Frist Campus Center, Room 243. We are right around the corner from the Pace Center, SVC, and the LGBT Center. We can be reached by phone at (609) 258-5565, by fax at (609) 258-2142 and by e-mail at womensctr@princeton.edu.

Our Staff

Student Workers

The Center employs undergraduate students to plan, implement, and advertise programs. We usually hire early in the fall semester.  The Student Employment website has more information and an application.

Jennifer Miller, program assistant

Jennifer recently joined the Women’s Center staff in 2009, after six years as a stay-at-home mom, and is very happy to be here! With an extensive background in non-profit organizations (National MS Society, Planned Parenthood Federation of America) and marketing (Columbia House DVD Club), as well as a passion for women’s issues, she can’t imagine a better place to be than the Women’s Center. When not at work, she is chasing after her two kids, relaxing with her favorite, ridiculous reality tv shows, and waiting for football season to begin.

Amada Sandoval joined the Women's Center as director in 2001. Aside from those duties, she loves spending time in the classroom and has led precepts in English, American studies, humanities and women and gender studies courses. She is also an academic adviser for Wilson College, and a faculty fellow for the women's track and field team. 

Outside of work, Amada is a Ph.D. candidate in English and American literature at Princeton. She is working on her dissertation which focuses on gender, race and class in hard-boiled detective fiction and film noir from the early 1940s. She loves talking about all of the above, as well as contemporary film and fiction, "Mad Men," "The Wire," yoga, Colorado, and children, among other things.
