Virtual WRC

WRC staff are here to offer connection, resources, and advocacy to support the success of all women and gender minority students. Students of all genders are welcome to all PCC WRC programming, events, and services.

PCC’s campus-based Women’s Resource Centers (WRC) apply the principles of intersectional, multicultural feminism to resist and dismantle sexism, racism, and other forms of oppression in order to support the success of all women and gender minority students.

Trans Inclusive Feminism Always

As a feminist space, WRC staff would like to acknowledge the myriad ways that trans and non-binary people, people of color, and especially transgender women of color have been left out of our movements. We are open to students of all gender identities and are enthusiastically working to ensure we are centering the experiences of all women in our services.

What we offer

  • Personalized help for entering, staying enrolled in and/or exiting college.
  • Support in accessing and navigating campus- based resources.
