Due to the impact of COVID-19, our Ethnic & Gender campus locations are closed until further notice. Our staff is working remotely and available to support you along your Highlander journey. We look forward to being back on campus and supporting you in-person. Please continue to wash your hands, wear a face covering, and maintain physical distance.

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, sexual assault and domestic violence support, student leadership opportunities, and special events connected to women's and gender issues. 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.
