RSO of the YWCA

The RSO of the YWCA of the University of Illinois is a Registered Student Organization with the University of Illinois.


We are driven towards women's rights and eliminating racism. Members gain skills in program planning and leadership development while becoming more connected to the CU community. The RSO celebrates creativity, enthusiasm, and new ideas toward social justice. The RSO and executive board meets weekly in the YWCA conference room.
