The mission of the Cornell Women's Resource Center (WRC) is to foster a more vibrant campus community by supporting the full and active participation of female students in both their personal and educational pursuits at Cornell. The WRC champions endeavors that support women's education, empowerment, and advancement at Cornell and beyond.
The WRC will be tabling at Club Fest this Sunday, September 6 from 1:00-4:00 pm in Barton Hall. Stop by our table to learn about the programs and projects the WRC will be offering this year, and sign up to get involved! Meet some of the students on the WRC Executive Board and be sure to take some of our signature mementos with you—everything from free condoms to flashlight keychains, buttons, pens, and more!
Cornell Social Consultants (CSC) will work to promote constructive practices in their communities to help to create a more positive sexual climate on campus.

CSCs will collaborate with other students and student groups to change the campus environment and reimagine traditional events and practices to promote mutual respect and collaboration within the Cornell Community.
