Providing educational programing and community engagement.

Whether participating in Queer Compass, Lavender Graduation, or one of our many programs in between, students, faculty, staff, and community members engaged with the GSC in a variety of formats including lectures, panels, film screenings, and story circles. We gathered at the GSC and in other spaces around the campus and city to share our lives and learn from each other.
