A brief description of the institution’s LGBTQ-inclusive policies, programs and practices:

The mission of the Queer Resource Center is to affirm, celebrate, and support the queer and transgender community at Amherst College. The QRC seeks to empower the lives of queer and trans people by honoring the intersections of their identities and by interrogating and interrupting heterosexism and cissexism. The QRC provides intentional educational and social programming that centers the lived experiences of queer and trans people, creates opportunities for community building, and fosters dialogue across and within difference.

Through dynamic programming and educational outreach, the QRC seeks to improve the campus climate for queer students and advocate for the respect and safety of all members of the campus community. In collaboration with other campus organizations and departments, the QRC works to meet the needs of students to promote personal and leadership development.
