The Women’s Resource Center promotes the following objectives:
- Educate about gender and its implications by providing information about the social construction of gender in relation to other social categories in an historical context
- Advocate for equity by taking an active role in educating the university community about policies and practices of particular concern to women. For example: sexual harassment, pay equity, sexual assault, and Title IX.
- Celebrate the contributions of women to society and culture by providing educational programs and activities that expose students to information about women’s lives, achievements and contributions.
- Empower students and community members to reach their full potential in a world where gender categories have enduring power and influence by providing skill development in areas such as leadership and critical thinking.
