Our Mission

The Gender Resource and Advocacy Center (GRAC) 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.  

The Gender Resource and Advocacy center is staffed by the Director/Confidential Advocate, SARA Coordinators, Student Advocacy Coordinators, the LGBTQ+ Resource Coordinator, the Sexual Health Resource Specialists, and volunteer SARA students.
