Welcome to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Resource Office at East Carolina University. Since 2011, we have served the entire ECU campus from our office in B-103 Brewster Building. We are open Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Our resources include a lending library; information on campus, local, and national resources; and two computer workstations, in addition to a social area and offices for our staff. Throughout the year, we offer educational programs and events, and participate in national campaigns such as Coming Out Day, Transgender Day of Remembrance, and “Gay? Fine by Me.” We invite you to visit the LGBT Resource Office—everyone is always welcome!
The LGBT Resource Office hosts our annual Fall Welcome and Social on Thursday, September 10 from 6 pm to 8 pm in the Green Room at the Croatan. This event serves as an introduction to the Resource Office and includes a preview of the Fall 2015 events. Students will have the opportunity to sign up as volunteers for the organizing committees for each event. Representatives of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Student Union (GLBTSU) will share information on the student organization, their meeting schedule, and upcoming events.
