LGBT Resource Center Ambassador Applications
Are you interested in serving as an LGBT Resource Center Ambassador?
The Ambassador program seeks to build a connection with students who want to represent the LGBTRC and cultivate their leadership capacities. This program provides students an opportunity to get more involved in center programming and initiatives; become better informed on LGBTQA and allied topics and concerns; and further develop their leadership skills. The three core principles framing the Ambassador program are social justice, advocacy, and leadership.
Applications are due by 5:00pm on August 22, 2014.
Are you an UGA alum?
The LGBT Resource Center is excited to invite you to be a part of our UGA LGBT Alumni Community! In an effort to develop and strengthen connections with our alumni, we are launching a Coming Home Campaign. The campaign will be a series of efforts designed to reach out and reconnect with our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, asexual, queer, and ally UGA alumni and we hope that you will join us in creating this community. First and foremost, please provide us with some basic contact information by completing the Alumni Contact form. Please be sure to do this in order to continue receiving information about upcoming alumni events. Our next correspondence will be to share details of an upcoming social gathering that is in the works, so be sure to keep an eye out for that information! We look forward to connecting with you!
LGBT Resource Center Mission
The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Resource Center creates a safe and inclusive environment for the LGBT, queer, and ally community and contributes to a culturally rich campus through community building, advocacy, social justice and diversity education, cultural competence, leadership, and the development of global citizens.
The LGBT Resource Center is a safe space for LGBTQ students and their allies. All visitors are expected to demonstrate respect to each other. Any individuals or groups that do not respect and support others on the basis of their race, color, sex, gender identity, gender expression, HIV status, ethnic or national origin, age, relationship/marital status, class/socio-economic status, ability, sexual orientation, ancestry, pregnancy, citizenship status, language proficiency, veteran status, religious affiliation, and/or spiritual beliefs will be asked to leave.
The LGBT Resource Center is a private office on the campus of the University of Georgia. This is not a free speech area. Free speech areas are located on Tate Plaza and outside Memorial Hall by the bronze bulldog.
