Our Mission

The Women's Studies and Resource Center engages an interdisciplinary community of scholars, students and advocates working in gender, sexuality and Women's Studies. The Center promotes gender equality, both locally and globally, through research support, programming, an academic minor, and community engagement. Finally the Center provides physical space for gathering, resources, and referrals for the UNCW and Wilmington communities.
