History of Campus LGBTQ+ Centers

History of Campus LGBTQ+ Centers

The history below was created and maintained on the Campus LGBTQ Centers Directory website by Nancy Jean Tubbs at the University of California, Riverside until 2024. When that website was taken down, Genny Beemyn, who had helped develop the list, agreed to maintain it online here.

Campus LGBTQ+ Centers Since 1971

Campuses are listed by the date a professional staff position or graduate assistantship was first established to work at least 50% time providing LGBTQ+ services. This date may differ from when a physical space first opened.
