Sexuality and Gender Equality (S.A.G.E.) Center

OUR MISSION

It shall be the purpose of the SAGE Center to transform the university into a safe haven that provides a positive academic, cultural and social environment for all people of sexual diversity including students, faculty, staff, alumni/ae, and university guests.

SAGE signTo achieve that goal, we seek to provide a safe communal space, personal support, resource information, relevant programming, and positive acknowledgment of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, questioning, asexual and ally (LGBTIQQAA) community. 

Ultimately, the SAGE Center wants to create a campus atmosphere of tolerance and understanding that is open and accepting of all human differences and free from the oppressive forces of homophobia, heterosexism, gender bias, and all other forms of discrimination that hurt and hinder humanity. 

We collaborate with clubs on campus, especially the LGBT Prism Club, an undergraduate student run organization which works toward educational awareness, promotes acceptance and fairness in campus policies and student attitudes, and above all maintains a supportive network. This organization works with determination to peacefully combat homophobia. This work may include, but not necessarily be limited to, such activities as participating in student panels in classrooms, sponsoring films, dances, and hosting speakers at meetings and around campus.
