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
