Volunteers are an essential part of the Women’s Resources Center. Volunteers regularly assist administratively within the office; host events, programs, and workshops; conduct outreach about our services and activities; and help assess and envision the evolution of our Center.
Volunteers also have the opportunity to develop personal and professional skills; gain valuable experiences in women’s organizing; and strengthen our campus community’s dedication to gender equity.
We encourage people of all gender identities to apply to be a part of the WRC volunteer family. Applications for the Spring 2020 semester will posted in late Fall. Volunteers will be selected and notified at the start of the Spring semester.
Interns have a more substantial relationship with the Women’s Resources Center. Those who intern at the WRC have the opportunity to be more heavily involved with project planning and execution, strengthen their leadership skills, and develop a body of work across the semester. Interns commit to ten hours (minimum) of work a week, to attend biweekly intern meetings, and participate in professional development opportunities. Interns can potentially earn up to 3 credit hours through the Department of Gender and Women’s Studies. The WRC does not currently offer paid internship positions.

Philip Monypenny Scholarship
Students involved in the WRC as consistent volunteers or interns, who are also enrolled in a degree program within the department of Political Science are eligible to apply for the annual Philip Monypenny scholarship. This $500 scholarship was established in the name of Philip Monypenny, who was head of the department of Political Science from 1967 to 1972.
