There are a variety of ways to get involved with the Women's Resource Center (WRC), with as much or as little time commitment as you'd like. Students can join the Center as volunteers at any point in the year! Volunteers help to staff the Center, work on on-going projects, and are the heart and soul of our community. Undergraduates and graduate students can also apply for a position on the Executive Board. Individual projects are also available for those with special interests.
The WRC sponsors many programs and events throughout the academic year—from finding internships, to discussing issues of safety on campus, to examining intersectionality—we offer a variety of workshops throughout the year. Other programs the WRC holds or co-sponsors include International Women's Day, Love Your Body Day, The Vagina Monologues, Feminism: Food for Thought, and Take Back the Night. Check out some of our past events here: Program Archives.
And, of course, we invite you to stop by the Center for free snacks and coffee, tea, and hot chocolate and a welcoming study/relaxation space. Free condoms, lubricant, dental dams and tampons and pads are available whenever the Center is open.
Looking for a place to share your interests and/or expertise? The WRC is always looking for interested staff and faculty to participate in programs and events.
We are currently in the process of trying to piece together the history of the WRC and are searching for those alums who have been part of our rich past. If you or someone you know has been involved with the WRC we would love to hear from you. The WRC also relies on the generosity of our alums to help support our activities.
Please contact Laura Weiss or Shura Gat if you are interested in getting involved with the Women's Resource Center. Or feel free to visit us at in 209 Williard Straight Hall, Monday - Friday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm (or by appointment).
