The Spartan Underwire is maintained by the San Jose State University Women’s Resource Center and the students of SJSU.  This website was created to connect the campus community to gender related issues on campus, in our community and around the world.

The Women’s Resource Center has a mission to support women and feminist students at San Jose State University. Through programming, and education outreach the Women’s Resource Center improves the campus climate for female-identified and/or feminist-identified students and advocate for the respect and safety of all the members of the campus and community. In collaboration with other campus programs, the Women’s Resource Center works to meet the needs of students to promote the successful completion of their educational goals. We welcome all persons who ever have, currently do, or will ever identify as “women.”
