Name of creator
The Women’s Resources Centre (WRC) opened in 1973 and serves nearly 25,000 people annually. As part of Extended Learning (formerly UBC Continuing Studies), the WRC offers career planning, vocational testing, community information, educational programs and free drop-in counselling services for men and women, certificate programs in cross-cultural and peer counselling, and working with an aging population.
Scope and content
This fonds consists of textual records, photographs, newspaper clippings, a VHS tape, and an audio reel. The materials focus on the history (or “herstory”) of the Women’s Resource Centre, emphasizing their move from the UBC Robson Square, where they originally opened in 1973, to the UBC Point Grey campus in 2002.
Immediate source of acquisition
Transferred to the University Archives in March 2018.
