The LGBTQ Resource Center supports the College's main student-run groups dealing with gender and sexuality. The groups work closely with the Center's direction in a joint mission to promote understanding and equality through education, mutual support and activism.
Spectrum: Gender & Sexuality Alliance
Spectrum works toward ending homophobia and transphobia through education and advocacy. We are dedicated to raising awareness about issues of sexual orientation and gender identity, changing discriminatory policies and attitudes and providing support for our members. Everyone is welcome in the group!
CGIA: The Committee for Gender Identity Awareness
CGIA is an official sub-group of Spectrum, working on a mission to raise awareness about the issues of gender identity and transphobia. Projects include working with Residential Education and Living on the issue of gender-neutral housing, and working with the administration to ensure that all of the College's bathrooms are gender-neutral. CGIA is currently working in conjunction with Spectrum and not meeting regularly.
(CQ)2: Connecticut College Queer & Questioning
(CQ)2 aims to build a supportive community for LGBTQ students. The group meets weekly to build social and community ties as well as to support each other in dealing with coming out and being out.
