The Women and Gender Resource Center provides free and confidential counseling and advocacy services to The University of Alabama students, staff, and faculty and students of Shelton State Community College regardless of gender identity. We do not communicate with ANYONE about you or your situation without your written consent except in specific circumstances which we will tell you about on your first visit. You are eligible for services if you are a victim of any of the following regardless of the time and location of the incident:
The WGRC has an advocate on call 24 hours a day.
An advocate is someone who offers victims information, emotional support and help finding resources. We help victims with the following:
If you need assistance, please call 205-348-5040 between 8 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. to schedule an appointment or to speak with an advocate.
For any after-hours assistance, call The University of Alabama Police Department at 205-348-5454 and ask to speak to the on call advocate for the WGRC. The police dispatcher may ask for your name and CWID, but you are not required to give this information.
The University of Alabama’s Sexual Misconduct Policy includes detailed definitions for the victimizations listed above.
The Women and Gender Resource Center routinely makes referrals to other campus and community agencies for services beyond our scope. If you would like to sit down with a victim advocate to explore referral options, make an appointment by calling 205-348-5040.
