RC Fall 2021 Reopening

Welcome Back Wes!  The Resource Center (facebook link, instagram link) is reopening on Monday (9/6)!  Our Fall 2021 hours of operation will be Mon-Thurs (10:30am-9:30pm), Fri (10:30am-6:30pm), and Sun (12:30pm-9:30pm) and we are located at 167 High Street (on the corner of Church and High Street across from 200 Church and Star and Crescent). The Resource Center (RC) was created to support, empower, and engage students with underrepresented identities at Wesleyan University. 

The center’s areas of focus include promoting dialogue and coalition building around the intersections of race, ethnicity, nationality, socioeconomic status, disability, gender, sexuality, sustainability, spirituality, and social and political activism.  We have homey study spaces, an awesome computer lab with free printing, the best kitchen and pantry on campus with free coffee, tea, and ramen, and a dynamic group of student leaders who make the RC operate, live, and breathe- so please stop by and be part of the community!

 

FGLI Textbook Library

Because of the success of the textbook request program, starting this year, the RC is partnering with the Olin Library to help manage the FGLI Textbook Library and FGLI Textbook Request program.  You will be able to find books related to the center's areas of focus in the RC (167 High Street) and you will be able to find textbooks related to science, mathematics, economics, psychology, language, film, art, history, politics, and fiction in the new FGLI Textbook Library section located in the Science Library on the main floor / Hall-Atwater side (picture of location). 

The FGLI Textbook Request program allows first generation and/or low-income students to apply for the RC to buy a textbook that they need for a class and lend it out to them on a monthly basis as part of the FGLI Textbook Library.  First check out our catalogue (RC location catalogue, Science Library location catalogue) to see if we have the text already in the library, then just apply through this form!
