The Women's Resource Center (WRC) works to support and initiate campus-wide programming and projects that address the needs and experiences of women undergraduate and graduate students at Cornell, in order to create a welcoming, safe, and healthy environment in which all community members can thrive. The WRC provides resources and referrals, support, educational programming, and advocacy and outreach. The WRC creates and supports efforts that address a range of complex and intersectional issues, including body image, sexual assault and harassment, undergraduate and graduate women's experiences at the university, issues for college women of color, sexuality, reproductive health and justice, and campus climate.

Consent Ed is a peer-to-peer education program, coordinated by the Women's Resource Center, that engages Cornell women in conversations about sex, consent, and social responsibility. Trained facilitators teach skills and provide information to help others intervene in situations where an individual's well-being may be at risk due to consent being an issue. Consent Ed believes that all individuals deserve to have bodily autonomy, the right to say "no" to any kind of sexual activity, and that an enthusiastic and freely-given YES should be sought and given in every encounter.
