Gender and Sexuality

Description:

The Gender & Sexuality Living Learning Community is a community that is open to any student wishing to explore topics around gender identity and sexual orientation as continuums.

This Living Learning Community will connect closely with Elon’s newly established Gender & LGBTQIA Center, full of resources devoted to students’ academic, personal, and social development. Academically, the LLC will closely connect with the work of the Women’s & Gender Studies (WGS) program. Women’s & Gender Studies is celebrating its 25th Anniversary at Elon. We will be taking this momentum forward with a variety of intellectual speakers.

Students will explore linkages across personal lived experiences & theoretical concepts of gender and sexuality. Students will increase their knowledge and awareness of particular topics from evolving language terms to bias incidents to current events. There will be opportunities to attend campus-wide speakers on topics, including feminism, masculinity, and sexual identities. A feature of the learning community will be small-group reflection with fellow students.

What/Where:

The new Gender and Sexuality Living Learning Community is located in Colonnades, building A, 2nd floor. The room options include single rooms with private baths and a pod of 4 single rooms with common space and two bathrooms, all on a floor with a shared lounge/study space and kitchen.

Who:

The community is open to any student wishing to explore topics around gender identity and sexual orientation.

Highlights:

  • Attend events with on campus speakers
