As part of the Women's & LGBTQ Resource Center, The Bridge LGBTQIA+ Resource Center (Davies 229) serves to provide a network of support for the LGBTQIA+ campus community. Through active outreach, event programming, and resource referral, The Bridge seeks to educate the entire University community concerning issues of social justice and equality, while serving the specific needs of those whose sexualities and/or genders have rendered them societally marginalized.
The Women's & LGBTQ Resource Center collaborates across institutional boundaries in order to develop programs, workshops, and activities that focus on raising the awareness of issues faced by the LGBTQIA+ community. Whether organizing the "Break the Silence!" concert for National Day of Silence, providing opportunties for students, faculty, and staff to share their coming out stories during National Coming Out Day, or pulling out all the stops for The Fire Ball--where drag divas help raise money for LGBTQIA+ scholarships--UW-Eau Claire offers a wide variety of experiences that educate and entertain.
