UTD Campus Resources for the LGBTQ+ Community

Galerstein Gender Center

The Galerstein Gender Center (GGC), under the Office of Diversity and Community Engagement, has been in existence since 1996. We advocate and support women, LGBT+ people and all communities facing oppression. Our programs are intersectional and delivered through educational workshops, lectures, leadership development, advising, resource referral, celebratory programs and advocacy. We also offer scholarships, volunteer opportunities, and organizational advising.

In the GGC you will find meeting and study space and the GGC Resource Collection, which contains a number of books on feminism and gender diversity. We are also home to the first dedicated lactation space on campus for parents who are nursing. We invite you to visit the GGC and find out how you can become involved.

From the LGBT+ @ UT Dallas Resource Guide:

The Student Counseling Center provides LGBT+ affirming therapy services, including individual, group, and couples therapy. The Gender and Sexuality Consultation Team at the SCC also focuses on services specifically for trans and gender-diverse students and may be contacted for questions related to letters supporting gender affirmation procedures, such as hormone treatment or surgeries.

The Student Wellness Center provides educational programs, resources and individual and group consultations to assist students in adopting responsible behaviors related to various topics. They also have a registered dietician for students with concern for body image, nutrition and eating disorders.

The Student Health Center provides both primary and preventative health care to currently enrolled students who have paid the medical services fee along with their tuition. Some off-campus coverage for gender affirmation procedures is available with student health insurance.

QuTD

QuTD advances the educational mission of the University of Texas at Dallas by cultivating a safe and inclusive environment that values, celebrates and affirms the sexual and gender diversity of UT Dallas faculty and staff members. We strive to increase visibility and to encourage meaningful involvement of LGBTQ+ and allied staff and faculty within the campus community as well as to advocate workplace equity and to promote educational growth in a climate of mutual respect.

QuTD will be a valuable mechanism to —

  1.     build a culture that fosters innovation
  2.     offer employees access to leadership opportunities
  3.     establish programs and activities aligned with the mission of the University of Texas at Dallas
  4.     provide employees opportunities to develop and grow, and
  5.     provide managers access to innovative concepts and unique solutions to challenges faced by the University.
