Founded in the Spring of 2011, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender Resource Center is a branch of the Office of Student Engagement - Multicultural Programs, which is a part of the Division of Student Affairs.
Born of the growing diversity of the student body, faculty, and staff at Lawrence Tech, the mission of the LGBT Resource Center is to provide resources for LGBT students, faculty, and staff and allies, and promote and document safe spaces and allies both on campus and in the local community.
Currently the center is located only on the Lawrence Tech servers in virtual form.
To achieve our mission, we provide various resources or links to resources for students, faculty, and staff regarding the LGBT community on campus, locally, and nationally. In addition, through our ally training program, Blue Devil Project Safe, we provide students, faculty, and staff with the information and resources to be visible and effective allies for the LGBT community on campus.
We hope that as the university grows and develops, we will as well. In the future, there will hopefully be a space on campus so we may provide better resources and help for the Lawrence Tech LGBT community.
