Gender-Inclusive Services

Gender Inclusive: This community will serve as a supportive and welcoming environment for students who have an interest in being as inclusive as possible as it pertains to gender identities and gender expression and would find comfort in living with others who have similar interests. Students within this community will have the option of receiving support from Campus Safe Space Allies as well as the Pride Center.

Gender-Inclusive On-Campus
