The GSC approaches this work with an appreciation for and sensitivity to the way that multiple and intersecting identities impact individuals’ experiences with and expressions of gender and sexual identity.
Although the GSC is an identity-based Center focusing on gender identity and sexual orientation, we understand that identity has multiple dimensions and we continually consider race, class, ability, geography, immigrant status, religious affiliation, and other individual different factors in our activities and planning.
Established in 1995 as the Office of GLB Concerns, the GSC is currently located on the first floor of the Behavioral Sciences Building.
The Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change
The six centers include: African-American Cultural Center, Asian American Resource and Cultural Center, Disability Resource Center, Gender and Sexuality Center, Rafael Cintrón Ortiz Latino Cultural Center, and Women’s Leadership and Resource Center.
The most significant strengths of the Centers include their expertise in providing relevant support to their specific student, staff, and faculty populations and their capacity to provide education to the general campus. They are committed to connecting the experiences, needs, dreams, and commitments of diverse campus communities to advance our principle of making diversity a social asset.
