The WRC partners with on and off campus community resources and organization to coordinate power-conscious programming related to gender, social justice, and feminism.
- The WRC coordinates large and small programs related to women’s empowerment, raising awareness about gender-based issues, feminism and social justice, with the goal of establishing gender equity for all. We partner with many offices/centers and student organizations on campus well as with our community partners.
- Some of our large programs include: The Feminist Flea Market, The Black Feminist Symposium, Wellness Week, the Girls in Film Film Festival, and Take Back the Night (part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month).
- Some of our smaller programs include: Tea Time, and identity circles like Juntas, Sisters Like Me, I’m First, and the Graduate Student Coffee Hour.
- We also coordinate the Ambassador Program, which allows students to develop professional and leadership skills, connect with the WRC and other students on campus, and learn more about how to apply feminism to their everyday lives!
