Visit the QTRAC
The Queer and Trans Resource and Advocacy Center (QTRAC) is located in the heart of RWU's campus, adjacent to the 9, 10, and 11 Tower of Maple Hall. The QTRAC is a frequent meeting space for our LGBTQIA+ student organization, the Sexuality and Gender Alliance (SAGA), and Feminist United, which is committed to promoting gender equity on campus.
What's in the QTRAC?
The QTRAC has a small library filled with books and DVDs that center queer and trans lives. The resources range from young adult novels, graphic novels, research texts, classic novels, autobiographies, documentaries, and feature films that explore the vast lived experiences of queer and trans folks. Many of the books and movies in the library center on the narratives of queer and trans communities of color. Stop by today to see what we have!
The QTRAC also has a kitchenette with a full-sized fridge and freezer, an air fryer oven, a microwave, a filtered water system, and a Keurig. We keep it stocked with tea, coffee, and hot chocolate at all times of the year! The QTRAC also has a beautiful lounge space (pictured above) where students are constantly doing homework, laughing with one another, and building community.
