    The LGBT Resource Office is proud to announce that ECU will be offering our first ever LGBT-specific academic courses this fall.  One is for incoming freshman and one if for upper-level students.  Check them out below!

    1. COAD 1000 for GLBT Students and Allies

    The objective of COAD 1000 is to assist freshman in being successful in their first year of college and beyond.  Topics covered in this course include understanding the transition from high school to college, student development and motivation, goal-setting, learning styles, study and test-taking skills, communication, critical-thinking skills, ECU rules and regulations, and career development issues. To be added to the COAD class that will feature an added focus on GLBT and Ally issues and identity, please e-mail course instructor Aaron Lucier at luciera@ecu.ecu    

    2. LGBT Identity, Society, and Politics (SOCI 4000-001/WOST 3500-001)

    The goal of this course is to introduce students to the growing social science research on LGBT people and communities.  This course will be organized around three general topics: the historical development of LGBT identities, communities, and space, the ways in which LGBT status influences one's experience in social institutions, including education, family, religion, and the economy, and the collective attempts by LGBT people to challenge societal exclusion and inequality and the ways in which these challenges are resisted.  Contact instructor Dr. Melinda Kane at for more information.
