Gender and Sexuality Center at CU Anschutz

A new office on the Anschutz Medical Campus!

In August 2018, the Office of Inclusion and Outreach at CU Anschutz Medical Campus opened a brand-new office: The Gender & Sexuality Center, or GSC.

The GSC is charged with education, advocacy, and support on issues related to gender, gender identity, and sexual orientation. Our goals in our first year are:

--To establish relationships with new and existing student organizations, academic schools and colleges, and staff and faculty across the campus.
--To collect information on the experiences of Anschutz community members, with a specific emphasis on:
  • People who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer or questioning
  • Transgender, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming people
  • Women of all sexual orientations
  • Pregnant and parenting students, faculty, and staff
​--To develop an education and advocacy plan that addresses the concerns and challenges of the Anschutz community
--To support LGBTQ-focused research and educational programs addressing gender, gender identiy, and sexual orientation in the health professions
