LGBTQ Center

In the early 2000s, citing concerns over a campus climate that was not supportive of and often hostile to LGBTQ students, the provost's office convened a Committee on LGBTQ Life. Among the recommendations was the creation of a center to provide services and support and to foster a sense of community for LGBTQ students and staff at Carolina. The center was established in 2003 with a full-time director. The LGBTQ Center holds events and programs, leads Safe Zone training for the campus community, and advocates for LGBTQ students at Carolina.
