Women's Resource Center

OUR MISSION:
The Women’s Resource Center is an inclusive on-campus student center, which strives to create change in response to sexism, racism, classism, ableism, and heterosexism. The WRC works to promote a safe and supportive climate that assists, supports and mentors women at Massasoit Community College. The Center enriches our campus community through educational programming founded in social justice, and nurturing individual growth through activism, programming, and counseling.

We invite you to participate in our many programs that celebrate women’s diversity and contributions offered throughout the year!

Resources at the WRC:

  • Books and films for and about women’s issues.
  • Information about women’s programs and services in the community.
  • Career, scholarship and resume resources.
  • Opportunity to plan and participate in workshops, discussion groups, book reviews, women’s history month and community service projects.

The Women’s Center is under the direction of the Office of Diversity & Inclusion.
