The Go Girlz Community Initiative is a program the Women's Resource Center at the University of Utah developed in 2004 to target underserved populations, primarily minority, first generation, economically disadvantaged female students, grades 6-12 in the Salt Lake City school district with the goal of early exposure to higher education.
(FORMERLY USTART) The Women’s Resource Center has been sponsoring students for over 10 years as a part of our commitment to a diverse and inclusive campus that values critical thinking. The Women’s Resource Center specializes in supporting first generation students, refugee and immigrant students, students of color, survivors of violence, and students from low socio-economic backgrounds.
In the works for years, these last few weeks gave us the time to sit and put it all together. Our online programming strives to meet the needs of the most students, including those who work long hours in between classes, don't have transportation to campus every day, are parenting students, etc. This platform brings the University, it's resources and also it's social life to students virtually.
