Sylvania Women’s Resource Center

The WRC is here for you!

These are strange and challenging times. We know that our community is strongest when we come together, and we are here to provide support in any way that we can. The WRC is committed to serving students during this time.

We are aware that PCC’s physical closure may cause additional stress for many of you, and our priority is the safety and health of our community. We are currently working hard to provide community and offering support during this time.

PCC and external resources

See the WRC homepage for additional PCC and external COVID-19 and advocacy resources.

If you need help finding a resource, please reach out to us, and we will do our best to support you. Take care, community. We’ll see you again soon, and in the meantime, we look forward to connecting with you virtually.

About us

The PCC Sylvania Women’s Resource Center (WRC) was founded in 1995 by Deborah Evind to provide a central location for services that support the academic achievement of women, while working to increase access to education for women, improve the retention of women students at the college, and encourage women’s leadership development.

We 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 women students at PCC. We welcome students of all genders.
