The LGBTQIA Resource Center at Georgia Tech opened in Spring 2014 as a joint endeavor by the Division of Student Life (then the Division of Student Affairs) and Institute Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (then Institute Diversity). The Center is now located in Suite 140 on the lower level of the Smithgall Student Services Building, also known as the Flag Building. It moved from its original location in Suite 138 to Suite 115A in June 2016, and moved to the current multi-room space in Suite 140 in August 2018.
The Center coordinates a range of programs and events throughout the year aimed at educating faculty, students, and staff about LGBTQIA issues, providing safe spaces for LGBTQIA students to build community and explore their identities, and facilitating conversations about LGBTQIA diversity, equity, and inclusion.
In addition to serving as the office of the director and two coordinators, the Center is home to a library of LGBTQIA-related books and DVDs that members of the Georgia Tech community are welcome to borrow.
Pride Alliance, the student organization that the Center collaborates with, has been cataloguing and archiving materials with the Georgia Tech Library. If you are interested in reading through those materials (dating all the way back to 1978), please visit the Archive & Special Collections webpage.
