Women’s Resources Center
who we are
Since its founding in 2009, the Women’s Resources Center has been committed to supporting womxn students, while catalyzing the development of their personal and professional selves. Staff are committed to supporting and actualizing liberation in all aspects of the Center’s work, striving for greater equity, retention, advancement, and empowerment of womxm students, staff, and faculty.
The mission of the Women's Resources Center is to improve the campus climate for womxn students, which we do by developing and implementing programs that address social issues through an intersectional lens. We work collaboratively with individuals and groups to identify personal, social, economic and political issues that adversely affect womxn, and offers support through advocacy, education, financial awards, and social action.
The Center also serves as the designated provider of Confidential Advising services, offering advocacy and support services to students, faculty, and staff who have experienced sexual misconduct (sexual assault, sexual harassment, sexual exploitation, stalking, and/or dating/domestic violence). Our service hours are Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.
