As part of our mission, the NC State GLBT Center offers identity-based and health-related information and resources, consults with students individually and collectively on issues related to personal identity and academic success, and refers students to a wide variety of resources on campus and in the local community. The Center also houses a reading library with a wide variety of texts related to the GLBT community; all of our library materials are available for check out. Review the information below to learn more about the services and resources offered in the Center.
The staff members at the GLBT Center are available to meet with students individually and in small groups to discuss GLBT identity exploration, the coming out process, tension or conflict with friends or family, financial difficulties, housing or roommate issues, academic assistance, or any other topic as needed. Students can stop by the Center Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. or can contact us to schedule an appointment.
The Counseling Center also coordinates two GLBT-specific counseling groups.
The Center also hosts monthly HIV/STI testing. Representatives from the Alliance of AIDS Services – Carolina provide FREE and CONFIDENTIAL HIV and STI testing on the last Wednesday of each month from 1-4 PM in Talley 4132. No insurance paperwork or appointment required. Students can stop by and request HIV (rapid and traditional), syphilis, Gonorrhea/chlamydia, and hepatitis C testing. Free safer sex supplies (latex and non-latex condoms, female condoms, lubricant and dental dams) will also be available. To view upcoming testing times, check out our calendar.
To help students prepare to enter and succeed in the workforce, the GLBT Center provides information about professional conferences held each year for GLBT college students. Some of these annual professional development opportunities include the Out for Work Conference, the Out to Innovate Conference, the Out for Undergraduate Technology Conference and the oSTEM Conference.
The Center also helps students connect and get involved with national professional organizations for GLBT students, scholars and scientists. Two of the primary organizations that promote professional development for students majoring in science, technology, engineering and mathematics are oSTEM and NOGLSTP.
