Student Affairs – Women's Resource Center

The Women's Resource Center (WRC) is a welcoming and comfortable place for students to meet and study. It is located at the corner of Coffin and College streets (24 College Street). The WRC sponsors speakers, workshops, films, discussions, and other programs and events on important gender issues, many of which draw together students, faculty, staff, and community members. It also sponsors off-campus trips to selected conferences and events. The WRC houses a resource collection of books and current periodicals on women's and gender issues. Each March the WRC sponsors programming in celebration of Women's History Month. The director of the WRC advises student organizations, including BWA (Bowdoin's Women's Association), the Student Body, FFLY (Fostering Female Leadership in Youth), V-Day, and BWIB (Bowdoin Women in Business). The WRC's Web site posts contact information, an up-to-date listing of events, links to other resources at Bowdoin, and information on WRC history.
