Mission and History of the Center
The LGBTQA Resource Center aspires to create an organized and empowered LGBTQA community at Northeastern. We initiate and sustain programs and services that enrich the holistic development of our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, asexual students and their allies. Recognizing the multiple identities that LGBTQA individuals hold, we work actively to build a socially conscious community that welcomes difference, conflict, and intercultural engagement.
The LGBTQA Resource Center was established in 2011 through the Office of Student Affairs as a part of Campus Activities. In 2013, the Center was transitioned to be a part of Residential, Cultural and Spiritual Life. The Center is currently staffed by a full time Assistant Director and a part-time Graduate Assistant.
Artifacts from LGBTQA history at Northeastern University are preserved at the University Archives. You can learn more about these special archive collections and how to submit items to this collection on the University Library website.
