Women's Resource Center

The Women Student Resources (WSR) was created to address the needs of women-identified students while providing gender education and resources to the entire NEIU community. Committed to student success, the WRC fosters empowerment and leadership through education, engagement, leadership, resources and advocacy. The WSR cultivates community amongst students, staff and faculty and NEIU as a whole. We utilize an intersectional feminist framework with regard to multiple indentities, including, but not limited to: race, class, gender, ability, culture, sexual orientation, spirituality, gender identity and more. We strive to create an inclusive space, welcoming of all people and all identities, meaning that ALL genders are welcome.
