Welcome to the LGBT Resource Office
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!
Two new scholarships—the LGBT Resource Office Pride Scholarship and the LGBT Resource Office Equality Scholarship—are being offered for the 2017/2018 academic year. The deadline to apply is Friday, March 3. These scholarships are made possible by the support of the LGBT Advancement Council with funds donated to the LGBT Priority Fund in Student Affairs Advancement.
Dr. Kurtzman worked in academic medicine for seven years before joining El Rio Community Health Center in 2010 where she works as a general pediatrician. Her special interests include care of LGBTQ youth, children with chronic disease and special needs, and medical genetics.
COFFEE House continues Wednesday evenings at 7 pm
Our Coffee House program continues this semester on Wednesday evenings at 7 pm in Brewster B-104. Again this semester, our graduate assistants, Katie Reynolds and Madison Veasey, will be co-facilitating our weekly gatherings designed to offer a safe space for community, discussions, and education.
On behalf of everyone at the LGBT Resource Office, it is our pleasure to welcome you back to campus for the Spring 2017 Semester! We are looking forward to another exciting semester. This semester, we have expanded hours: Monday through Thursday, the office will be open until 6 pm! Special thanks to our Resource Office Assistants who have generously agreed to work a bit later to allow us to serve more students throughout the day!
