The Women and Gender Resource Center’s Student Leadership Council (WGRC SLC) offers University of Alabama students the opportunity to hone and cultivate their leadership skills through rigorous volunteering opportunities. The WGRC plans and implements several volunteer and leadership initiatives throughout each academic year. Members of the Student Leadership Council will be vital participants in the promotion and execution of the WGRC’s mission to address gender inequity and foster a community that values social justice, safety, leadership, mentoring, education, multiculturalism, partnership and research. Membership applications will be reviewed at least once a semester.

Below are some projects that Student Leadership Council assists in the planning, developing, and implementing of throughout the year:

  • Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Awareness Months
  • Chocolate Festival
  • LunaFest
  • Cultural Heritage Month Events

Students who are committed to enhancing these initiatives are highly encouraged to apply to become a member of the Student Leadership Council.
