Education, Advocacy, and Trainings

Education: 

NYU LGBTQ Student Center staff coordinate a peer education program that trains student leaders to present on LGBTQ issues to classes, student programs, or student clubs. The Center sponsors a variety of cultural, educational, and social programs to address the diverse needs and interests of the LGBTQ community. The Center sponsors workshops and events during theme month celebrations and provides other campus-wide programming to increase campus understanding of LGBTQ issues. 

Advocacy:

The Center works with campus and local resources to provide individual support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students targeted by acts of bias. Center staff record and report incidents of bias against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students. Center staff work with other University units to ensure fast, effective responses to acts of bias. 

Training and Consultation: 

Center staff offer leadership workshops exploring the challenges, rewards, roles, and skills of effective LGBTQ student leadership. 

The Center extends active, ongoing support to student organizations. Center staff provide LGBTQ issues training to campus peer education groups, resident assistants, and various staff units. 

The NYU LGBTQ Student Center assists other University offices and individuals in developing programs and services on LGBTQ issues. The Center offers staff and faculty development sessions on various topics affecting the LGBTQ student population.
