Mission Statement

The DSU Women’s Resource Center is dedicated to serving all female college students of Dixie State. Our goal is to facilitate access to resources, mentoring, and support available to women across the disciplines. By organizing campus events that cater to our female student population and connecting them with organizations that have similar interests, we hope to help women achieve their academic and professional goals.

If you have any questions, or would like more information about the Women’s Resource Center, please feel free to contact us or drop by during our semester office hours in Holland 489; we look forward to hearing from you! Check out the UWHEN-DSU Chapter website for female faculty and staff support.
