About WRC

Womens Resources Center supports and connects students, linking them with faculty, alumnae, staff, community leaders and other students through programs, workshops, mentorship, fun activities and networking events focused on the intersectionality of sexism and other forms of social identity. Student organizations may request meeting or programming space as well as apply for co-sponsorships from WRC for activities that raise awareness of gender/womens issues on campus, and increase the visibility and diversity of women at the University of Illinois. We offer confidential, supportive counseling for sexual assault/rape or abuse within a relationship and other types of interpersonal abuse. Find out more information.
