Queer Resource Center (QRC)

The Queer Resource Center (QRC) is here to advocate for and provide resources to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, and Allied (LGBTQIA+) students, faculty, and community.

The word queer can bring up a variety of emotions as it has been used in discriminatory and hurtful ways in the past. In spite of its past usage, today queer is a widely accepted umbrella term used to describe this community. Learn more.
