Land Acknowledgement Statement

This land on which we inhabit is physically situated in the original ancestral homelands of the The Wea Peoples of the Miami Tribe of Indiana. The Wea were a Miami-Illinois originally located in western Indiana and part of the larger Illinois Confederation. We pay respect to the Miami Tribe (Delaware, Kickapoo, Miami, Mound Builders, Piankashaw, Potawatomi, Shawnee, and Wea), past, present, and future, and the Wea Peoples continuing presence in the homeland and throughout their historical diaspora. This calls us to commit to continuing to learn how to be better stewards of the land we inhabit as well.



The Women's Resource Center (WRC) strives to empower, educate, and create a safe space for people of all gender identities and expressions.  WRC supports the inclusiveness of women across campus and within the community. The mission of the Women's Resource Center is to recognize the diverse accomplishments, promote the interests, and help meet the needs of women at Indiana State University.  This is accomplished by providing a forum for discussion, information dissemination, and programming that celebrates and promotes women and their allies.

WRC’s educational content addresses all issues of gender, relationship, and sexual diversity. Our programs comes from a place of intersectionality, understanding that issues of gender cannot be separated from other social identities, such as race, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, etc.
