The Women's Resource Center is a place of advocacy, support and safety for all members of the Bucknell University campus community. We seek to foster a campus community in which women and men live and work in a climate of mutual respect, understanding and equality. We support the University's mission to develop students who are productive citizens with a sense of justice, self-awareness, compassion and a respect for our commonality as people.
The Women's Resource Center actively engages in a feminist model of empowerment to:
- promote women's rights and self-determination
- redress inequities, both historic and contemporary, based on sex, gender identity and expression, and sexual orientation and
- celebrate the achievements and highlight the struggles of women the world over.
