About the LGBTQA+ Resource Center

Welcome to the LGBTQA+ Resource Center website! You can find information about the center, ways to get involved, how to be aware of and navigate your campus climate, and more. While we try to keep our information current and provide a good foundation regarding information, programs, and services, we are not able to create and maintain a comprehensive overview of all the relevant information, programming, services and resources that may be available. Information on all these topics change so if you have any questions, comments, compliments or concerns, please feel free to drop by the center, or contact us via email or phone. Enjoy your visit!

The LGBTQA+ Resource Center is located in 346 Nebraska Union. The Resource Center is a welcoming environment that provides an inclusive space for people of all sexual orientations, gender identities and expression. We strive to create a center and campus climate that is welcoming and inclusive for people of all orientations and identities. We hope to move beyond safe and inclusive spaces to brave spaces! Where people are comfortable enough to have respectful conversations about challenging topics!


If you have any questions, feel free to contact us!
