The Student Emergency Fund supports students whose hardship is impacting their program attendance and functionality and is to be used after all other financial resources have been exhausted. Funds can be dispersed up to a total of $500 per student during their time at Willamette, as available.
The Textbook Assistant Fund supports students who are unable to purchase required textbooks due to financial hardship.
The Gender Resource and Advocacy Center (GRAC) in the Loft at Montag Den provides resources and support to persons of any gender and sexual identity in the Willamette University community. We strive to create a safe and affirming space intended to empower those we serve. We promote gender equity, inclusivity, and social justice by supporting systemic change through education and collaboration. The GRAC offers individual and confidential advocacy to those impacted by sexual violence, stalking, relationship violence, and sexual harassment.
Students have the ability to update their names in the Willamette computer systems, which will then populate downstream in WISE and SAGE. This will allow students to identify themselves with a preferred name, in addition to their legal name, and provide a consistent preferred name experience across the university.
Student organizations that are seeking to deepen their understanding of bias and racism and strengthen their commitment to creating inclusive spaces are welcome to apply. Faculty and Staff advisors are encouraged to work with groups post-workshop.
