Launched in fall 2018, the LGBTQIA Resource Center Faculty/Staff Liaison program aims to strengthen relationships between the Center and departments across campus, creating a vast network of professionals who provide and share resources and information for and about the LGBTQIA community.
The program is an opportunity for faculty and staff to build collaborative and mutually beneficial relationships with the LGBTQIA Resource Center so that we might optimally and collectively serve the LGBTQIA community at Georgia Tech.
Recruitment is now CLOSED for Fall 2019. Applications will be accepted again in Fall 2020. If you have any questions before then, please email us.
