The LGBTQIA Resource Center at Georgia Tech opened in Spring 2014 as a joint endeavor by Student Engagement and Well-being (then the Division of Student Affairs) and the former Institute Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (then Institute Diversity). The Center has seen a few office locations in its’ 10-year history and moved to its current multi-room space in Suite 140 of the Smithgall Student Services (Flag) Building in August, 2018. In Fall 2024, it became part of the newly formed Division of Arts, Belonging, and Community within Student Engagement and Well-Being.  

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 students to build community and explore their identities, and facilitating conversations about LGBTQIA inclusion and belonging. 

In addition to serving as the office of the director, assistant director, and program coordinator, 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 Archive & Special Collections
