Programs & Services

The Women's Resource Center facilitates programming dealing with an extensive variety of issues and concerns affecting women. Our goal is to enrich and enlighten women on the issues confronting them. The Center is dedicated to providing seminar and lectures series that explore a wide spectrum of concerns.

Although programs are designed to enrich and enlighten women, they are not limited to this group. Many seminars and lectures will interest the entire campus, community, and regional populations.
