Women's Resource Center
The Women's Resource Center was established and is directed by the EIU Women's Studies Program.
The Women's Resource Center, or WRC, provides an informal setting for students, faculty, staff, and community members to gather and discuss all topics related to gender, sexuality, and systems of power and privilege.
Carrie New, Manager of the WRC
The WRC is a library, where books, periodicals, videos, and articles by and about women can be checked out or photocopied. The Women's Resource Center collection can be found by searching the Booth Library website. It is a research center, where students and scholars can come for help on research projects related to women's issues in a variety of fields.
The WRC is a contact center, where information and referrals to area resource groups and organizations can be obtained (such as physical and substance abuse hot lines, mental health and child care services, pregnancy and sexual assault information, and area support groups.)
The WRC is an awareness center, where anyone can find out about current events and legislation relating to women, job opportunities, calls for papers, scholarships, upcoming conferences, and worldwide educational programs in Women's Studies.
The WRC is a place to get course listings and information about the Women's Studies Minor.
The WRC is a peaceful place to study, talk or browse.
The WRC is a great place to find out how to get involved in woman-centered activities on campus and in our community. If you would like to be a part of Take Back the Night, the Vagina Monologues, or other activities for women's services, contact the WRC.
The WRC is not just for women! All students, faculty, and community members are welcome to visit and use our resources. The center is located in the basement of Stevenson Hall, which is located on the corner of 4th Street and Grant Avenue.
The WRC is staffed by Office Specialist, Carrie New and two student workers each semester. For access to the center, call (217) 581-5947 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
