The Lasallian Women and Gender Resource Center is a student-led community committed to intersectional feminism and social justice and to supporting students as advocates for gender justice, especially for the most vulnerable.
Our Center is located in the Student Commons, room 3C and staffed by our Graduate Assistant, our student Gender Justice Advocates, and our interns. We are here to support students in crisis, to collaborate with students on their ideas, and to provide a healing space for all students who need one.
In this unprecedented moment, the LWGRC is working to support our campus community both in our space in the Commons and through virtual events and programming. In the midst of a global pandemic, and an overdue reckoning with racial injustice, we are here to support you, to stand with you and amplify your voices, to help organize and build community, and to support resilience and healing in this time of trauma.
Come and visit us to learn more about feminist and LGBTQIA+ advocacy on campus, discover resources for survivors of gender-based violence, and find an active community of support and solidarity. We are:
A space for anyone, of any gender or sexual orientation, needing resources or support around gender or LGBTQIA+ issues.
A community for women’s and LGBTQIA+ groups to share space and solidarity in order to identify and work towards common goals.
A network to ensure that women’s and LGBTQIA+ issues are central to Manhattan College’s mission.
A safe and brave space that values each experience and viewpoint in pursuit of productivity, personal goals, dignity and self-respect.
A center that offers students the opportunity to be creative with their personal goals and initiatives.
