Women’s Resources Center

Women's Resources Center is a confidential resource related to sexual assault/rape, sexual harassment, stalking, and abuse within a relationship (sometimes called dating or domestic violence). This means we can talk with students and provide supportive counseling and advocacy without the information going any further unless they decide to report the situation! Three staff members at the women's center provide students with supportive counseling and advocacy services, all can be reached at 217.333.3137 or email:
Pat Morey, Assistant Dean/Director, pmorey@illinois.edu
Rachel Storm, Assistant Director, rstorm2@illinois.edu.
Molly McLay, Assistant Director, mclay1@illinois.edu.
