Advocacy

Whether you need support for an important meeting, a safe place to discuss difficult issues, or assistance negotiating the university system, we can help. The staff at the Women's Resource Center are commited to advocacy on behalf of individual women and women's rights, providing advice and guidance

The Women's Resource Center provides advice and guidance about sexual harassment, rape by a date, rape by an acquaintance, and reliable referrals in times of stress. In addition, the WRC offers a non-judgemental setting in which to express your feelings and concerns.

Weekly Networking/Affinity Groups

Weekly networking/affinity groups are held at the Women's Resource Center. They address issues particular to women's experience. In the past, groups have formed to support single moms, feminist exploration, lesbians, women of color and re-entry women, men against rape, and women in the arts.

Sexual Assault Prevention

The Sexual Assault Prevention Education Program, a component of the Women's Resource Center, is dedicated to reducing the incidence of sexual assault in the campus community. Our role in reducing sexual assault is multifaceted. Our work is intended:

  • To increase campus safety
  • To broaden public awareness about the nature of rape and its impact on women and men
  • To mitigate the trauma of the sexual assault victim

Our philosophy is that through education we can prevent the perpetuation of rape. We serve the students, faculty, staff and neighbors of the university.
