Gender and Sexual Diversities Resource Center


The Gender and Sexual Diversities Resource Center fosters an open, safe and inclusive environment for people of all sexualities and gender identities. The Center has resources for anyone who is interested in learning about LGBT people, issues, and concerns.

The Resource Center works with faculty, staff and students to increase awareness and affirmation of LGBTQIA individuals to reduce discrimination and harassment based on sexual orientation and gender identity. In addition, the center collaborates with faculty, staff, and students to develop programs to promote knowledge and awareness.

The Resource Center collaborates with the Gay-Straight Alliance at BSU and other organizations on campus to develop programs, workshops, and activities to raise campus awareness about LGBT concerns. The Resource Center maintains a collection of LGBTQIA resource materials (books and pamphlets) for use by the University community.
