Think and Do The Extraordinary
The Campaign for NC State
GLBT Center | NC State University


The GLBT Center serves students of all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions, including gay, lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, queer, transgender, genderqueer, gender fluid, gender non-conforming, non-binary, agender, intersex and questioning students and their allies. It strives to increase the NC State campus community’s understanding of diversity by working collaboratively to raise awareness, promote respect, and create a culture of equity, inclusion and social justice.

The NC State GLBT Center is one of four campus community centers (along with the Women’s Center, Multicultural Student Affairs, and the African American Cultural Center) housed under the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED). The OIED facilitates efforts to ensure equity and opportunity, increases awareness of diversity issues through education, and strengthens relationships across diverse groups. Through these efforts, the OIED promotes cultural competence development, thereby fostering a welcoming and respectful campus. For more information about OIED, please click here.


One of the main functions of the NC State GLBT Center is to help GLBT and Allied individuals connect and form community. Look around and find the group that’s right for you.


The GLBT Center will observe Transgender Awareness Week from Tuesday, November 14 through Monday, November 20, 2017. Be sure to take a look at the educational and thought-provoking programs planned for this year’s observance.


Each year the GLBT Center facilitates a variety of workshops and presentations for students, staff, and faculty. We schedule several open-enrollment workshops each semester and offer additional workshops for departments and organizations by request. Find out more about educational opportunities here.

NC State is one of 88 universities to receive a 2014 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine. INSIGHT is the oldest and largest diversity-focused publication in higher education.

The HEED award recognizes universities whose diversity and inclusion efforts show a broad understanding of diversity, including gender, race, ethnicity, military service, disabilities, membership in the LGBT community and more.
