Elon University’s Gender and LGBTQIA Center exists so LGBTQIA and Ally students & employees
feel respected, safe, and valued on campus, so they may fully participate in the full array of
academic, co-curricular, and leadership experiences offered at Elon University.
We are proud that our national ranking for LGBTQIA Inclusion has skyrocketed this year.
In 1 year, Elon University has jumped over 250 universities, now officially at
4.5 out of 5 stars on the CampusPRIDE Index for LGBTQIA Inclusion.
Our services, education, and programs impact prospective and current students, employees,
& alumni who may identify across the Gender & LGBTQIA spectrum
(Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Queer, Intersex, Asexual, & Ally)
The GLC is located in Moseley Student Center, upstairs in the 211 Suite.
We have 13 friendly GLC Student Volunteers in any given week, who hang out in the GLC and serve as friendly faces to students and families who may stop by to say hi, hang out, or simply get a tour of the space.
4 rooms exist within the Moseley 211 Suite:
. Large main social space - LGBTQIA students can drop in, hang out, and be themselves
. Lending Library of Books & DVDs - students can check these out for free, whether for academic research projects or watching in your residence hall - check out our Lending Library Catalog
. Quiet study space - students will do solo or small group studying on our lounge chairs
