The Women's Center Official Banner

The Women's Center is part of WPUNJ'S ongoing commitment to the elimination of barriers, prejudice and bigotry, and the creation of a supportive campus climate for all people. By highlighting resources both within and outside of the university, the Women's Center works to create a campus community in which issues of gender and diversity are addressed in all aspects of a student's education.

 

National Resources for Gender Equity and Research

National Council for Research on Women (NCRW)
The National Council for Research on Women is a network of more than 100 leading U.S. research, advocacy, and policy centers with a growing global reach. The Council harnesses the resources of its network to ensure fully informed debate, policies, and practices to build a more inclusive and equitable world for women and girls.

National Women’s Studies Association Women’s Centers Committee
Women's centers have representation on the NWSA Governing Council as a standing committee. This is more than a symbolic recognition of the important role that women's centers play in feminist education. NWSA recognizes that "women's studies" is broader than what happens in the classroom and that women's centers are the chief co-curricular feminist educators. Campus-based women's centers have a long history of working together with women's studies to transform the curriculum, the campus environment, and society at large. The NWSA Women's Centers Committee (WCC) provides a forum for women's center directors, staff and others to share information, ideas, challenges, successes and support. The WCC sponsors an annual pre-conference as well as sessions during the NWSA annual conference. Current WCC projects include: Handbook for Women’s Centers, Intersectionality Working Group, Women’s Centers Database, and others.

Women in Student Affairs Knowledge Community (WISA), National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA)
The purpose of the WISA Knowledge Community is to give voice to the needs of women in student affairs and to provide professional development opportunities through both regional and national activities designed to address gender equity and prompt personal growth. WISA initiatives work to center the experiences of marginalized people and focuses on the intersections of race, class, sexuality, disability and gender identity with gender and sex. WISA provides a home for student affairs professionals who work in women's and gender centers or with gender-related concerns on college campuses, creating networking opportunities for those professionals.

WRAC-L: The Women's Resource and Action Centers List
WRAC-L is a forum for discussion about and sharing of resources regarding issues of significance to women's centers. The list is open to the staff and affiliates of women's centers, whether community-based or associated with schools, colleges or universities.
