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 LGBT Center is open for everyone. Homophobia and heterosexism hurt people regardless of their sexual orientation. Challenging and confronting oppression is vital in a learning environment.
