How Can You Get Involved?

The GSC is open to all students interested in helping the group achieve its goals. We believe that homophobia is best overcome through the collaboration of both gay and straight people working together.

The GSC offers numerous programming opportunities to the campus community to inform, as well as change, attitudes regarding homosexuality. While always looking for innovative ideas from current and new members, some of the programming includes: panel discussions, guest speakers, movies, and programs in the residence halls.

Please consider joining to share your ideas!
