Founded in the 1970s and reopened in 2014, the WRC provides a safe space for women to discuss and explore the issues that affect them and their communities. The WRC supports students as they reach toward their personal, academic, and professional success. The WRC also connects the campus and community to a wide range of resources, programs, events, and opportunities designed to empower and celebrate women of all ages and backgrounds.

The Women’s Resource Center (WRC) fosters an environment of inclusion and equity with programs aimed at diminishing sexism, racism, heterosexism, ageism, ableism, classism, and other forms of oppression.

The Women’s Resource Center (WRC) provides a dedicated, safe and welcoming space where the campus community has access to a wide range of programs and services including:

  • Comfortable meeting area for group discussions and one-on-one meetings
  • Crisis intervention, referrals and resources
  • Co-curricular activities, events, and workshops that enrich the university experience
  • Quiet study area, desks, and computers for in-between-class work or breaks
  • Books and bulletin boards with information and announcements
  • Volunteer and internships opportunities
  • Space available for use by campus clubs and organizations
  • Break room with small refrigerator and microwave
  • Private lactation room for nursing mothers

While the WRC is focused on women students and women’s issues, we are open to the entire campus community including students, faculty, staff, administrators and community members.
