The Women's Resource Center is a place of advocacy, support, and safety for all members of the Bucknell University campus community. In order to promote Bucknell's mission that its students develop into productive citizens with a sense of justice and carrying the qualities of self-awareness and compassion, and in line with Bucknell's commitment to diversity, the Women's Resource Center actively engages in a feminist model of empowerment to
promote women's rights and self-determination
redress inequities, both historic and contemporary, based on sex, gender identity and expression, and sexual orientation, and
celebrate the achievements and highlight the struggles of women the world over.
We recognize that inequities faced by women are played out through other forms of oppression related to race and ethnicity, disability, religion, nationality, and economic class, and programs of the Center address all of these sources of disempowerment. We work to achieve these goals through a variety of educational, social, and cultural programming, as well as leadership opportunities, placing special emphasis on the needs of students. Overall, we seek to foster a campus community in which women and men live and work in a climate of mutual respect, understanding, and equality.
