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.
