Our mission is to increase the understanding and appreciation of how gender and sexuality influence and frame our daily lives and social interactions. To accomplish this, we work with campus constituencies to create safe and welcoming spaces for all students, faculty, and staff; advocate with and on their behalf for social justice and equality; and enhance critical inquiry into diversity and inclusion through programs and discussions.


Education and Outreach

The education and outreach component of the office includes the Lafayette College Safe Zone Program, the Masculinities on Mondays series, the Women's Issues Wednesdays series, the Gender Fluid Fridays series, SexPositive (a monthly discussion group), From Me to We: A Social Justice Experience (co-sponsored with the Office of Intercultural Development, Office of Religious and Spiritual Life, International Advisor, and Landis Community Outreach Center), as well as faculty/staff outreach.

Programs and Celebrations

Taking time to sponsor programs that help celebrate everyone's gender (male, female, trans*, gender fluid, etc.) and sexuality (heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, asexual, pansexual, queer, etc.) is one of the main focuses of the office. We have successfully co-sponsored numerous initiatives including the Madame de Lafayette Series, LGBT History Month, Women's History Month, Sex Week, and National Coming Out Day. Be sure to visit often for a list of upcoming celebrations!
