The Women's Resource Center is a place of advocacy, support, and safety for all members of the greater University and New Mexico community.
Through a feminist model of empowerment and educational, social, and cultural programming, we seek to promote women's self-determination and political involvement; awareness and advancement of women's rights to ensure equality in all spheres of life; redress of inequities based on gender, sex, race, disability, sexual orientation, and economic class. The WRC also seeks to promote understanding and mutual respect among women and men to achieve individual and social change as well as to create a positive campus environment.
Educate university policy makers, students, faculty, staff, and the public regarding issues that affect women focusing especially on the interaction of sex, gender, race, class, and other forms of oppression. Plan special events that enhance, support, and empower women on campus and in the local community. Educate, support, and provide a safe space for women on campus through cultural and educational programming. Provide peer education, mentoring, and scholarship opportunities. Enhance students persistence toward degree completion.
