About the Center
Founded in the spring of 2011, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer or Questioning Resource Center is a branch of the Office of Student Life and Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, 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 LGBTQ Resource Center is to provide resources for LGBTQ students, faculty, staff and allies, to 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. Students are encouraged to stop by the Office of Student Life or Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to learn more.
What We Do
To achieve our mission, we provide various resources or links to resources for students, faculty, and staff regarding the LGBTQ+ 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 LGBTQ+ community on campus.
The Future of the Center
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 LGBTQ+ community.
