Welcome to the LGBT Resource Office

Welcome to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Resource Office at East Carolina University. As part of the Department of Intercultural Affairs within Student Involvement and Leadership at ECU, the Resource Office works in conjunction with our sister center, the Ledonia Wright Cultural Center, to help prepare students with the knowledge, skills and values to succeed in a global, multicultural society.  We work each day to develop tomorrow's leaders to serve and inspire positive change.

Since 2011, we have served the entire ECU campus from our office in B-103 Brewster Building. We are open Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Friday, 9 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!
