Throughout the year, the LGBT Resource Center sponsors events for students to enjoy. Many of the programs are co-sponsored by student groups, various university departments, and community partners. If you are interested in assisting, email Devin D. Moss for more information.
The Fall Quarter is an exciting time! The LGBT Resource Center hosts the Welcome Reception for LGBTQ students at Northwestern University. The reception brings new and returning students together along with faculty and staff to build a healthy community experience on campus. The reception is supported by Rainbow Alliance, Project ShoutOUT, Queer Pride Graduate Student Association, NUGALA, and the Campus Advisory Network.
Quench (Queers & Lunch)
Quench provides and opportunity for faculty, staff, and community partners to interact with students outside of the classroom. Students are presented with an engaging topic of interest for an indepth dialogue during lunch. Topics range from intersectionality to national policies to cultural aspects of the LGBTQ community. This program is co-sponored by Gender and Sexuality Studies.
Homecooked Conversations is a program where a staff, faculty, or alum of Northwestern University opens their home to undergraduate students. As students help prepare a home-cooked meal with the host, they get to know their experience as an LGBTQ or Allied individual and their role within the Northwestern Community. For a few hours, students are able to get away from campus, avoid the dining halls, forget the books, and get to know their host and each other through this community building program.
Annually, the LGBT Resource Center hosts an end of the year celebration in collaboration with NUGALA. During this program, graduates are celebrated and honored for their success.
