Welcome to the LGBT Resource Office
Welcome to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Resource Office at East Carolina University. As part of the Department of Intercultural Affairs within Student Involvement and Leadership at ECU, the Resource Office works in conjunction with our sister center, the Ledonia Wright Cultural Center, to help prepare students with the knowledge, skills and values to succeed in a global, multicultural society. We work each day to develop tomorrow's leaders to serve and inspire positive change.
Since 2011, we have served the entire ECU campus from our office in B-103 Brewster Building. We are open Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Our resources include a lending library; information on campus, local, and national resources; and two computer workstations, in addition to a social area and offices for our staff. Throughout the year, we offer educational programs and events, and participate in national campaigns such as Coming Out Day, Transgender Day of Remembrance, and "Gay? Fine by Me." We invite you to visit the LGBT Resource Office-everyone is always welcome!
Safe Zone training is an opportunity for people to talk, learn, and ask questions about sexuality and gender in a non-judgmental, safe, educational environment. The purpose of Safe Zone is to create a network of allies who are willing to talk to students about sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. Training is offered throughout the year on Main Campus and the Health Sciences Campus. Each session is three hours in length and includes a panel of students who share their experiences as members of the LGBT community on campus.
Registration for faculty and staff is open through Cornerstone.
Safe Zone Training is scheduled as follows:
- Tuesday, September 26 from 1-4 pm in the Student Recreation Center, Room 202
Thursday, September 7
6:00 pm in the Great Rooms in Mendenhall Student Center
