Our Mission

 The Women's Studies and Resource Center is an interdisciplinary and intersectional community of students, scholars, and advocates committed to social justice and equity for marginalized peoples. Our intellectual framework stems from gender and sexuality studies. The Center works with campus, local, and wider community partners through online teaching, research support, programming, and service activities that further social justice and work to combat social inequality at every level. In addition, we offer professional workshops and leadership opportunities for students, staff, faculty, and community members as we strive for solutions to address gender-based discrimination and develop inclusive communities at UNCW and across the globe. The Center also provides physical space for gathering, resources, and referrals for the UNCW and Wilmington communities.
