The center's name now is the Women's and LGBTQ Resource Center. The Women's and LGBTQ Resource Center advocates for the welfare of women as well as the LGBTQ community. The staff provides resources, information and programming in coordination with academic departments, advisory committees and other organizations that address challenges faced by women and the LGBTQ campus community.
