Gender & Sexuality Resource Center

Welcome to the Gender & Sexuality Resource Center

The Gender & Sexuality Resource Center is dedicated to creating a safe and inclusive campus for all students, while advocating for and celebrating those identities that have historically been and continue to be marginalized. We believe in education and inspiration, not alienation, and that is reflected in all programs and events. Exploring privileges and oppressions is at the heart of our mission, and in so doing–and with a focus on intersectionality–we engage the campus community in ways that create room for understanding and empowerment.

Award winning staff and interns 

The Gender & Sexuality Resource Center's staff provides resources, information, and programming in collaboration with existing departments, advisory committees, organizations, and offices; we foster a supportive campus environment through the development and sponsorship of intellectual, personal, and cultural programming.

UW-Eau Claire has recently achieved a 5-Star rating by Campus Pride and is also recognized as the best school in Wisconsin for LGBTQIA+ students and faculty.  UW-Eau Claire also ranks #3 in the country by College Choice in their list of the Top 50 best overall campuses for LGBTQ students. 

Under the umbrella of this program we offer the Women's Resource Center and The Bridge: LGBTQIA+ Resource Center. These two locations provide a safe space and an informal lounge/study space for students to gather. Learn more on the pages linked to the left.
