The GSC provides education, outreach, research and support for and about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and allied people.
We serve students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members throughout Chicago of all gender identities, gender expressions, and sexual orientations through cultural events, scholarly lectures, public dialogues and interactive trainings. We also connect students, faculty, and staff at UIC with resources, referrals and opportunities.
The Gender and Sexuality Center is one of the six Centers for Cultural Understanding & Social Change (formerly known as the Centers for Diversity) at UIC housed in Academic Affairs reporting to the Office of Diversity.
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 the Women’s Leadership and Resource Center.
