The SAIRC Director is responsible for the overall operation of the SAIRC programs. This includes training, supervision, and evaluation of SAIRC program coordinators and assistant coordinators, facilitating office communication, budget management, serving as a liaison to other areas of the AS and Viking Union, and ensuring that programming is of high quality and meeting the needs of Western Washington University students. We offer work-study positions, volunteer opportunities, resource libraries, referrals to other campus and community resources, programs for residence halls and classrooms, peer supports, and small- and large-scale events.
The purpose of the six centers of the Student Advocacy & Identity Resource Center (SAIRC) is to provide information, advocacy, activities, and peer education to Western students. The SAIRC strives to empower and support all members of WWU’s diverse community. The SAIRC also provides the Opportunity for WWU students to gain valuable work, volunteer, and life experience.
