Women's Resource Center (WRC) student agency
The Women's Resource Center's goal is to promote gender wellness and equality in the UNO community through campus events, outreach, and initiatives.
WRC is a student-run, multi-service agency offering everyone an opportunity to explore and discover resources pertaining to women's lives. We proudly represent all who identify as women on this campus.
In an effort to actively support the campus with resources, the WRC offers free reproductive and menstruation products including, but not limited to:
- menstrual cups
- tampons and pads
- pregnancy tests
These items are available at the Women's Resource Center office, 114 MBSC, or at events featuring The Big O campaign such as the moving reproductive and sexual health gazebo.
