LGBT*QA Resource Center's COVID-19 Response

All Resource Center staff are working remotely until further notice. For assistance, please email us at

We at the Resource Center and Western Illinois University have been closely monitoring the development of COVID-19. The health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and community members are our top priority. Following state-wide guidance, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all events through the end of the spring semester. The MCC team has decided that graduation events will move forward in an alternate format.
We will keep you updated regularly, including if and when events will be rescheduled. 

Please visit our social media channels for further updates and online engagement opportunities. For questions about WIU's response to COVID-19, please check the University's website for the most up to date information.  

About Us

The LGBT*QA Resource Center was established in the Fall semester of 2011. Since its first year, the LGBT*QA Resource Center has made substantial progress in creating an inclusive environment for LGBT*QA individuals on the Western Illinois campus. Since its inception the LGBT*QA Resource Center has provided campus-wide programming, Safe Space Training, a cozy LGBT*QA Lounge, and spaces to engage the Western Illinois University community in dialogue about LGBT*QA topics. Throughout the academic year, the LGBT*QA Resource Center will be sponsoring and co-sponsoring a variety of programs such as Trans* Week, Camp OUT, Pride Week, Lavender Graduation, and many more!

Have a question or would like to request a Safe Space Training for your office? Do not hesitate to contact us!


The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Queer/Questioning, Asexual/Ally (LGBT*QA) Resource Center offers a welcoming and inclusive environment for people of all sexualities and gender identities/expressions. The LGBT*QA Resource Center also serves as connection for LGBT*QA individuals to resources, support, education, programming, and advocacy with an emphasis on the holistic development of students.
