Resources and Upcoming Events for LGBTQ Students and Allies

As the school year kicks off, there are many upcoming events and opportunities for LGBTQ, similarly identified, and supportive graduate students. The Resource Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity (RCSGD) works with students, staff, and faculty to ensure that LGBTQ identities, experiences, and concerns are represented and addressed at UCSB.

The center aims to create a vibrant and engaging environment through:

  • Social and educational programming,
  • Volunteer and leadership opportunities,
  • A comfortable and welcoming social and study space, and
  • Professional and student staff members for support and advocacy.

Additionally, the RCSGD hosts regular events specifically for graduate students. Upcoming events:

LGBTQ Graduate Student Mixer

Meet other LGBTQ, similarly identified, and supportive graduate students. Build community, and celebrate fall! RSVP on this Facebook page.

Queer Grad Chatz: Queering Mentorship in the Academy
Thursday, Nov. 12, 12 p.m.

RCSGD Lounge (3rd floor of the Student Resource Building)
Queer Grad Chatz is an opportunity for grads to come together to discuss how queer identities impact experiences of graduate training, professionalization, and research. The installment will focus on mentorship, including strategies for working with faculty as well as how to more effectively serve as mentors to others.
