Key Areas

The Women's and Gender Resource Center at Dickinson College presents opportunities for integrated learning in five key areas:

Education:

The Women's and Gender Resource Center Director serves in a hybrid faculty/administrative role and teaches courses in the Department of Women's and Gender Studies. The Center also offers collaborative educational and co-curricular programming, such as the Women's and Gender Studies Faculty Research Lunches.

Networking:

As a campus-wide resource, the WGRC seeks to bring together students and staff through programs, events, and educational opportunities to discuss something we all share: gender. Landis House, where the WGRC is located, serves as a hub for multiple offices and student organizations; it is a great place to access resources, build partnerships, socialize, and learn from one another in a vibrant and welcoming community.

Leadership:

The Women's and Gender Resource Center's Internship Program offers an opportunity for students to develop professional skills and core competencies as they engage in research, coordinate programming and events or provide other support for the work of the WGRC. If you are interested in an internship at the WGRC, please make an appointment with Donna Bickford to talk about your ideas. All internships will be part of the Internship Notation Program.

WGRC staff are also available to consult with any organization or campus unit interested in exploring gender issues or developing relevent programming.

Gender Equality:

As a unit in the Division of Student Life, the WGRC actively contributes to committee and policy work on diversity and inclusion, assessment, student culture, and gender-based violence.

Healthy Community:

The WGRC partners with the Prevention, Education, and Advocacy Center (PEAC) and other campus and community groups to support survivors and others impacted by sexual violence and dating violence, and to work toward the elimination of violence against all people.
