The Gender & LGBTQIA Center advances educational programs, support, and advocacy for students, employees, and alumni
to succeed at Elon and beyond. We aim to engage LGBTQIA students and allies in creating intentionally inclusive communities around gender, sexuality, and intersections of identity. As a result, our students will feel:
Validated, Valued, & Victorious : The 3 V's of the GLC
. Validated in their identities
. Valued for their contributions and who they will become
. Victorious in their academic and social life at Elon
By accomplishing our mission, vision, and core pillars, students can participate in the full array of academic, co-curricular, and leadership experiences offered at Elon University.
CampusPride is a non-profit organization dedicated to making higher education safer and more inclusive across LGBTQIA identities and communities.
