The mission of the Women and Gender Resource Center is to address gender inequity and foster a community that values social justice, safety, leadership, mentoring, education, multiculturalism, partnership and research. This is accomplished by gender-related outreach, advocacy and support to individuals and communities of all identities. The WGRC is part of the Division of Student Life.
