Founded in Fall 2018, the Gender and Sexuality Center is housed in the lower level of the University Center, room 103. Complete with relaxing social and study space, staff offices, and a resource library, the Center's mission is to encourage ESU community members to discuss and reflect upon the myriad ways that these two interrelated identities influence our lives.

Grounded in an intersectional perspective, the GSC's programs and services range from the organization of campus-wide events such as LGBT History Month, Women's History Month, and National Coming Out Week and support of different student organizations and groups to providing a warm and welcoming space for all individuals to engage.
