Welcome to the IC Center for LGBT Education, Outreach, and Services

Our campus is home to a diverse, vibrant, and engaged community of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT), and allied students, staff, and faculty. Many LGBT and allied people have found the campus and surrounding community an ideal place to learn, work, and live.

Who Are We?

The Center for LGBT Education, Outreach, and Services actively fosters the academic success and personal growth of LGBT students, and it offers college-wide services to enhance the campus community's understanding and appreciation of LGBT people and themes.

The center's services include

  • an office staffed by a professional director
  • a resource room that offers a welcoming and supportive environment for LGBT people and their allies
  • resources, information, and referrals on LGBT issues
  • campus-wide LGBT-themed educational programs and events

Founded in 2001, the center provides access to information, education, support, and services that value each person's unique diversity. Everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.

I look forward to your visit to the center! 

Luca Maurer, Director
