Hello Rainbow Center Community!
As we continue the steps to find a new director of the Rainbow Center, please know that it will be business as usual at the Rainbow Center. Elsie Gonzalez from the Office of Diversity and Inclusion will serve as the Interim Director until the new director is placed.
Everyone is welcome at the Rainbow Center. We pride ourselves on a family-like environment with academic and social opportunities. We have been serving UConn's diverse communities of gender identities, gender expressions, and sexualities since 1998. The fun and amazing staff provides resources and services to the wider campus community of students, faculty, staff, and local residents. Our educational and social programs include weekly discussion groups, Gender and Sexualities Studies courses, an LGBTQ alternative spring break trip, bi-monthly Friday nigh socials, the weekly Out to Lunch lecture series, the weekly CommunitE e-newsletter, Rainbow Cinema, a number of unique programs, the annual t-shirt awareness campaign, and a library with over 2,000 books and videos. For the tenth time in a row, we were honored to host the 24th Annual True Colors Conference on March 17-18, 2017! Look at True Colors on CNN! Information about the Transgender Lives Conference, happening at the UConn Health Center in Farmington, CT, in April 2017, can be found here.
Celebrate our 18th-year anniversary as one of the best 100 gay-friendly campuses in the country, and our 4.5 out of 5 rating on the Campus Pride Index Report Card by participating in a Husky Safe Zone training. Check our website and calendar for upcoming events. We hope to see you here!
