Women's Resource Center

At the Women’s Resource Center, we respect all persons and value diversity. We are committed to social justice, gender equity, and creating an environment where violence is not tolerated.       

The Women's Resource Center (WRC) and Sexual Assault Prevention (SAP) utilize a collaborative and strength-based approach for inspiring students to maximize their potential academically, creatively, socially, and spiritually. We provide five main modules of service: education, outreach, support, empowerment and referrals.

The WRC seeks to enhance the Saint Mary's learning experience by fostering an inclusive environment for students of all backgrounds, ages and belief systems, while promoting and practicing acceptance and collaboration. The Director of the WRC strives to empower students by providing the tools to recognize and challenge social injustices such as sexism, racism, ethnocentrism, classism, socialized gender roles, homophobia, and other forms of oppression and 'isms' which affect young men and women in today's society.

St. Mary's College of California is historically a very safe campus. However, SAP acknowledges that members of our community are not immune from experiencing sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking either on or off campus. Whether it is concern about a prior abusive event, life experience, or current situation, the Director of SAP can provide confidential support, information, advocacy, and resources and referrals to students affected by these issues.  

In addition, the WRC and SAP offer advocacy and support for students who are curious about developing healthy personal relationships, stronger self-esteem, and/or positive communication practices. We are committed to proactively educating the campus community through prevention and awareness programming and community events. We encourage the participation of all students, regardless of gender identity, to help strenghten our campus community and support the movement to end violence based on power and control, gender, and/or hate.

WE ARE LOCATED ON THE GROUND LEVEL OF AUGUSTINE HALL.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU!
