About The LGBT*QA Resource Center

The LGBT*QA Resource Center was established in Fall 2011. Since its first year, the Resource Center has made substantial progress in creating an inclusive environment for LGBT*QA individuals on campus. Now, in its 6th year, the Center provides campus-wise programming, Safe Space Training, a cozy LGBTQA+ Lounge for students to study, and spaces for engaging dialogue within the Western Illinois University community. In the upcoming 2017-2018 academic year, the Resource Center will have programs from the campus Drag Show, to Trans* Day of Remembrance, to Camp OUT for National Coming Out Day, and so many more. If you have any questions, concerns, or would like to request a Safe Space Training, do not hesitate to contact the office!
