Who We Are
At the Gender and Sexuality Resource Center, we’re your home away from home—inclusive of gender and sexual identities. We’re committed to helping you find the resources and support to complete your degree at NIU. We celebrate all identities and intersections and collaborate with the Asian American Resource Center, Center for Black Studies, Disability Resource Center, Latino Resource Center, Military and Post-Traditional Student Services and Career Services.
We are honored to be one of just 87 campuses to receive a 4 out of 5 stars or higher on the National Listing of LGBTQ-Friendly Colleges and Universities. This listing is updated annually, and honors our ongoing commitment to you and creating an inclusive community. We are also a proud member of the Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals, an elite class: NIU's GSRC is one of the colleges and universities internationally whose services include a professionally-staffed campus resource center addressing needs related to sexual orientation and gender identity. Further, we are a member of the National Women's Studies Association, an organization committed to promoting and supporting the production and dissemination of knowledge about women and gender through teaching, learning, research and service in academic and other settings. Engaging and supporting men at NIU is another one of our priorities—look for expanding opportunities in this area!
