FAQs ABOUT OUR CENTER'S STRUCTURE

Student Services fees fund the LGBTRC. The director submits a budget request annually to the Student Services Fees Committee. The 2010-11 non-salary permanent budget totals $22,700. The LGBTRC also funds all of the staff positions mentioned above.

The LGBTRC primarily serves students (both undergraduate and graduate). However, networking between staff, faculty, and students allows the LGBTRC to bring together the entire LGBT campus community. Also, all students, including straight-identified students, are encouraged to use LGBTRC resources.
The Allies Program provides one way for the entire campus community to get involved in creating a "safe space" for anyone exploring sexual orientation or gender identity issues.
The LGBTRC also provides resources and referrals to the off-campus community, and offers educational presentations to area high schools and organizations.
