The University of Rhode Island’s Gender and Sexuality Center is a cultural department that allows students, faculty, and staff to explore and affirm their multiple and intersecting identities, especially surrounding gender and sexuality (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer).

We are committed to nurturing a student-centered learning environment where all are engaged in purposeful academic and personal identity development.

Our staff passionately promotes a welcoming, inclusive, and supportive URI community.
