Welcome to the Women’s Leadership and Resource Center!

We provide educational programs that affirm the diverse needs of woman-identified people on campus. We work to promote gender equity by raising awareness of women’s and gender issues, developing women’s leadership, celebrating women’s accomplishments and contributions, and encouraging self-care and spiritual well-being.

WLRC houses the Campus Advocacy Network (CAN) program, through which we offer resources–crisis support, advocacy, education, training–to address interpersonal violence (sexual harassment/violence, stalking, domestic violence) in individual, community, and institutional context.

WLRC provides a welcoming, safe, and inclusive space for people of all genders that encourages dialogue and diversity. Come study, relax, and chat with us.
