The LGBTQ Student Resource Center is a tri-institutional office serving students, faculty, and staff of all genders and sexualities on the Auraria Campus. We are a resource for those experiencing issues with sexuality, gender identity, and discrimination or harassment. We are a community for all.
Since its founding in 1992, as Colorado’s first campus LGBTQ+ support organization, the LGBTQ Student Resource Center has fostered acceptance, understanding, and personal growth through community education, engagement, and support services.
The LGBTQ Student Resource Center is located in the Tivoli Student Union in room 213. Our business hours are Monday to Thursday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. During these times visitors can browse our library stocked with more than 2,000 books and videos, ask about training programs, seek additional resources or just relax in our social space.
Our dedicated staff includes the director, Steve Willich, and our student staff members. Input and involvement from the entire campus community is welcomed.
Our center operates on the C.A.R.E. model:
- Community Building: Our social space is available for anyone to study, meet fellow students, find community, and develop a sense of belonging on campus
- Advocacy & Support: We assist students with difficult situations like discrimination and harassment and help students navigate campus support services. We advise students on issues including coming out, sexual health, relationships, social justice and combating homo/transphobia.
- Resources: We provide information on campus and community resources related to sexual health, suicide and violence prevention, therapy, addiction recovery, and civil rights.
- Education: Our office hosts LGBTQ+ identity-based events, discussions and classroom training. We welcome you to browse our library of more than 2000 books and videos for additional information.
The LGBTQ Student Resource Center is a tri-institutional student fee-funded department that strives to improve the campus climate for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer students. We do this by fostering acceptance and understanding through educating the campus community about issues related to this population and developing programming that unites diverse communities of people. Additionally, we provide support services and growth opportunities for LGBTQ students to realize their fullest potential.
