The NYU LGBTQ+ Center creates a welcoming environment for students, faculty, staff, and alums to engage with and develop their understanding of LGBTQ+ communities through programs, events, learning and development, support, resource sharing, and consultation. Everyone is welcome to join, learn, and connect; to deepen their networks and build bridges across groups. Our center is part of a broad spectrum of programs and services dedicated to fostering belonging and inclusion. We are committed to helping all community members discover a holistic range of resources at NYU.
