The Intercultural Center (IC) is the direct resource area for all allies of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ&Q) community. As a partner in RWU's examination of our global society, our office works support students and to raise issues related to the LGBTQ&Q community.
The office serves as a practical resource and support for the Sexual Advocacy for Everyone (SAFE) student club. We also work to support individual LGBTQ&Q students, faculty and staff through recognition, programming and referral.
International and Multicultural Student Affairs serves as the main conduit to create a campus environment that is inclusive and supportive of student diversity in the areas of sexual orientation and gender identity/expression.
The Hawk Ally Program is designed to educate administrators, staff and faculty about the experiences and concerns of LGBTQ members of our community as well as provide tools for creating supportive environments for LGBTQ students.
Look for staff and faculty with a rainbow hawk sticker on their desk or office area. These faculty and staff have participated in Safe Zone training and have committed to being allies to LGBTQ students. You can also meet OUT faculty and staff at RWU, by visiting OutRWU's wepage, our affinity group for faculty and staff who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning.
