Welcome to the Women's Resource Center

When Women Are Well, The World is Well

Welcome to the Women's Resource Center

The Women’s Resource Center (WRC) was created to address the needs of our female students while providing gender education, support, services, and resources to the campus community.  The Women's Resource Center is committed to student success, in that its primary goal will be to Engage, Embrace, Educate, Enlighten, and Empower our female students.

The Women’s Resource Center supports and connects students, by linking them with faculty, alumnae, staff, the community and other women students through programs, workshops, mentorship, activities and networking events. The WRC will work collaboratively with student organizations to create and promote activities that raise awareness of gender/women’s issues on campus, increase the visibility and diversity of women at the Chicago State University.
