The mission of the Women in the Curriculum and Women’s Studies Program (WIC) is to improve the quality of education for all students by helping to ensure the experiences and perspectives of women are part of the University curriculum. The WIC Program, which reports to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, administers a minor and a major in Women’s Studies and encourages the development of departmental and interdisciplinary Women’s Studies courses. The Program also continues a long-standing effort toward revising existing courses so that they represent equally the experiences, values, contributions, and perspectives of both women and men and so that the classroom climate in all courses is equally hospitable to both female and male students.
The Women’s Resource Center is part of the Division of Lifelong Learning. The purpose of the Women’s Resource Center (WRC) is to promote educational access and equity for all women, to provide an alternative and complement to existing services and facilities, and to further the collective and individual goals of women regardless of race, national origin, ethnicity, color, age, physical ability, sexual orientation, religious or political beliefs, social or economic status, or occupation. The WRC exists for and because of all women. The WRC serves not only the women (classified, faculty, professional, and administrative staff as well as the student body) of the University of Maine, but also, to the extent possible, women throughout the State of Maine, Furthermore, the Center provides services and programs to promote and maintain a positive and supportive climate conducive to women’s personal and professional development.
The Writing Center is a service of the Department of English. Its purpose is to help students improve their writing by giving them feedback on what they have written; it is not an editorial service. The Writing Center, located in 402 Neville Hall, is staffed mainly by undergraduate students. Students needing help with their writing are encouraged to visit the center for consultation and assistance.
