Support for Women That Impacts All

The Women's Resource Center (WRC) provides programs and services that support and empower the UCR community. We offer campus safety programs, student leadership opportunities, and student-driven programs. We champion student persistence, gender equity, a strong sense of community, and everyone's right to safety and a high quality of life.


The WRC is a multipurpose Student Affairs department that promotes awareness and proactive response connected to issues that intersect women and gender.


Through its programs and services, the WRC will connect theory, research, experiential learning, co-curricular development and/or practical application from a social justice lens.
