The Gender and Sexuality Resource Center acknowledges both the challenges and resilience of trans spectrum students, faculty, staff and community members. Further, in the GSRC's commitment to support, education and advocacy, we gather a collection of online resources for navigating processes and systems at NIU, aimed at removing barriers; we also offer involvement opportunities such as Transitions, TransAction Task Force and the LGBTQ+ Speaker's Bureau. We work in collaboration with other departments to develop workshops, presentations, programs and conferences on topics that are important to those who identify as and support those in the trans spectrum community.
