Posted: Updated:
The Women's Center at Virginia Tech is celebrating its 20th anniversary.

The center first opened its doors in Lane Hall in 1994. Ten years later, the center moved to its current location at 206 Washington Street.

More than 100 people have volunteered with the center over the past five years, according to the university.

Each year, on average, the center provides counseling and advocacy services to 150-200 students, staff and faculty that have been impacted by gender-based violence.

Since 2001, around 2500 students, faculty and staff have used counseling and advocacy services.
