Community

The Women’s Resource Center works with many agencies and organizations both on campus and in the Salt Lake City community to ensure that students receive the support and assistance they need in order to be successful and thrive at the University of Utah. Below are just some of the offices, organizations and agencies we collaborate with.


Campus Community:

University Neighborhood Partners
University Neighborhood Partners sets out to redress historical inequity by understanding systemic barriers that have prevented access to higher education and to rewrite that history so that residents of the west side see themselves as holders and creators of knowledge. UNP is a close collaborator with the WRC Go Girlz Initiative.

Gender Studies
Before changing its name to Gender Studies in 2002, the Women's Studies Program at the University of Utah had existed since the mid-1970s, making it one of the oldest programs in the U.S. From a humble start with a small group of dedicated faculty and students, the program grew considerably over the years. Today in Gender Studies, there are about a 100 majors and minors studying for undergraduate degrees, and about 30 affiliated faculty. Gender Studies is a close and valued collaborator with the USTART Program.

Community Resources and Collaborators

Women and Education Website
The Utah Women and Education Initiative (UWEI) is the outcome of a need to increase the number of Utah women holding postsecondary degrees and certificates, enabling them to more effectively contribute to the local, social, and economic development of the state; realize their own potential for positive influence and contributions to the public and private good; and positively influence and contribute in family, societal, and work contexts.
The Initiative will orchestrate a collective effort for Utah to become one of the most innovative and successful states in the union by harnessing the power of education for its residents. Educators, business people, and community members are working together to achieve the goal of having 66% of Utahns aged 20-64 attain postsecondary degrees or certificates.
