Support Services

The 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). That means when we talk with students, staff, and faculty who have experienced harm, we make sure you get what you need and on your terms! There are several staff members at the Women's Center who provide you with support and advocacy services.

To schedule a free appointment, call 217.333.3137 or email at, or just stop in during our office hours from 9am-5pm Monday thru Friday.

Students, faculty, and staff of all gender identities are welcome and able to receive services (this includes men).

Individual support and advocacy services are available to students by appointment and referral. The WRC utilizes a survivor-centered approach to our work where empowerment is central. Additional support services and reporting options can be found at the University of Illinois We Care website.
