Intersectionality Resource Center

The Intersectionality Resource Center (IRC) aims to facilitate a one-stop-shop to connect you to valuable resources and services both on and off NWU’s campus. We encourage you to research the organizations providing these resources and services to ensure they align with your beliefs (religious, cultural, etc.) so you may receive the most compatible and relevant experience.
