Support Services @ Women’s Resources Center

Women's Resources Center is a designated confidential resource related to sexual assault/rape, sexual harassment, stalking and abuse within a relationship (sometimes called dating or domestic violence). When we talk with students and provide supportive counseling and advocacy, the information we hear goes no further! There are several staff members at the Women's Center who provide students with supportive counseling and advocacy services. To schedule an appointment, call 217.333.3137 or email at, or just stop in during our office hours from 9am-5pm Monday thru Friday.

Other support services and reporting options can be found at the University of Illinois We Care website.
