Center for Sexuality & Gender Diversity

The Center for Sexuality and Gender Diversity (SGD) is an office that manages support services, event programming, training, and academic related resources for students, faculty, and staff at KU. The Center is also a physical lounge space for our LGBTQIA+ students, staff, and faculty to feel safe and respected on the KU campus in Lawrence. The Center is open for you to come study, hang out, and connect to our smart TV for academic or recreational purposes.  

If you would like to receive email updates from the Center, please sign up here.
