Welcome: UNM Women's Resource Center
As a student affairs department the UNM WRC believes that learning takes place both inside and outside of the classroom. To this end, the WRC works in partnership with academic units to enhance the UNM experience. The WRC is dedicated to offering a variety of learning opportunities through its programming and services. The WRC maintains a particularly close relationship with the UNM Women Studies Program. Women Studies offers an interdisciplinary major or minor through coursework that examines the diverse cultural, historical, and social experiences of women.
40 Years with the Women's Resource Center
In 1972, a collective of faculty, graduate students, and community members, contributed to founding the UNM Women's Resource Center. Since then we have continued to
educate, support, and provide a safe space for women on campus through
cultural and educational programming.
The UNM Women's Resource center has been and continues to be an advocate for women on campus and in the
community promoting the establishment and enforcement of policies and
procedures which address issues of institutionalized sexism & racism, sexual
harassment, and all other forms of discrimination in the classroom, on campus,
important to the UNM Women's Resource Center. Reaching out to all genders and
parents in the community, the WRC is a safe, a family friendly environment
offering UNM's only universal restroom, family friendly computer pod, and
lactation stations throughout campus for women returning to work, or study.
Self Defense and Awareness Class
The WRC is pleased to offer a second self defense class for the UNM community in partnership with the Office of Student Affairs and IMPACT Personal Safety.
UNM Division of Equity and Inclusion Survey
The purpose of the survey is to assess attitudes, behaviors and
perspectives of faculty, staff, and students about diversity, equity and
inclusion and the manner in which it impacts the quality and extent of
interactions on our campus. An outside consultant, Halualani and
Associates, will administer the survey to ensure anonymity and
The Equity and Inclusion Survey will provide information to aid the
creation and maintenance of an inclusive campus for an engaging and
supportive learning and working environment for all.
UNM has the diverse student
population today that many universities will have tomorrow. Therefore,
we can serve as a national model for incorporating diversity as an
advantage in creating foundations for excellence in higher education.
