Mission, Vision, and Pillars of Service


The LGBT Resource Center coordinates efforts to ensure the inclusion of all LGBTQ+ students and works to eliminate discrimination based upon sexual or romantic orientation, gender identity, or expression. The LGBT Resource Center provides advocacy, outreach, education, support, and community to LGBTQ+ students of all identities, backgrounds, and experiences.


We envision a Cornell community where individuals of all identities experience a sense of community, empowerment, and inclusion, and are able to thrive as their full authentic selves.
