LGBTQA Resource Center

The LGBTQA Resource Center was established in Fall 2011. In its first year, the Resource Center has made substantial progress in creating an inclusive environment for LGBTQA individuals on campus.   Currently, the Center has increased initiatives in programming, reinstituted Safe Space Training, created a lounge/work area for students, as well as engaged in dialogue with constituents across Western Illinois University. In the 2012-2013 academic year, the Resource Center hopes to continue its efforts in the areas of programming, but also focus on the recruitment and retention of LGBTQA individuals. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the office!
