Mission and History
The Women’s Resource Center honors gender as a central identity, and engages critical women's and gender issues, while challenging systems of inequity and advocating for change at the University of Northern Colorado.
The WRC accomplishes our mission by:
- educating our campus community
- providing a space that celebrates diversity and the unique self
- engaging in conversations about gender and the relevance of feminism
- empowering student voices to create gender equity at UNC
The WRC is a support resource for students specific to women's and gender issues and serves as a referral site for additional resources on campus and in the community.
The WRC is dedicated to offering an inclusive environment and is committed to social justice and equity for all. We value people of all genders coming together to end sexism and all other forms of oppression.
"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
Scott-Willcoxon was completed in October 1999 amidst the central campus renovation. A student referendum provided part of the funding for the facility. The building was named after Dr. Nancy A. Scott and Marcia M. Willcoxon. Scott served as Vice-President for Student Affairs from 1984-1995 and was involved in Student Affairs and women’s issues on a national level in addition to her dedicated work on campus. Willcoxon is credited for creating the Women’s Studies program while a faculty member in 1974. At that time, it was only one of three in the country.
