The S.A.G.E. Center is deeply involved with the Intercollegiate Pride Coalition of Connecticut (ICPC). The ICPC is an alliance of LGBTQIA students from Connecticut's colleges and universities. It is a voluntary organization that serves to create a forum for dialogue and exchange of ideas in order to increase networking, organizing, programming and support among members. Students from our center attend ICPC meetings (about 4-5 times per year) in order to communicate and interact with other institutions of higher education.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead
