About the Gender and Sexuality Center

Mission Statement

The GSC offers resources and support on LGBT, women’s and men’s issues and coordinates campus initiatives to prevent sexual violence and create healthy communities and relationships. We work with other campus organizations and offices to strengthen and sustain an inclusive campus community that promotes gender equality and awareness and welcomes people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
