Gender & Sexuality Center
The goals and purposes of the gsc are: 1. Affirming the visibility of and advocating for the rights of women, queer, ally and transgender individuals on the St. Olaf campus. 2. Educating the St. Olaf community about issues of gender and sexuality, including feminist, queer and ally, transgender, and political matters; helping members of the community understand the relevance of these issues in their own lives, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity/expression. 3. Providing an unconditionally safe, multi-gender space open to the community in which students know they will be supported and accepted regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity; encouraging recognition and acceptance of gender expression and trans individuals on the St. Olaf campus. 4. Providing a venue for increasing dialogue between students, student organizations, administration, alumni, faculty and staff regarding gender and sexual orientation equality and diversity. 5. Connecting issues of gender, sexuality, and multiculturalism (gay rights, women’s studies, gender studies, racial, religious and cultural diversity, internationalism, etc.) by working to build connections across social divisions. 6. Establishing a venue for student organizations to hold events and educational resources related to gender and sexuality under the framework of a functioning resource center. 7. Providing education and resources related to safe sex.
