The LGBTQ Center, established at Brown in 2004, provides a comprehensive range of education/training, cultural, social and educational programming, support services and advocacy services to the entire Brown Community.  The Center works to create and maintain an open, safe, and inclusive environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning students, faculty, and staff, their families and friends, and the campus community at large. 

We recognize that sexual orientation and gender identity and expression work through and are influenced by race, ethnicity, gender, culture, age, disability, class, faith and other social characteristics.  In keeping with the ideals of Brown University we commit to justice, equality, and respect for all persons in all of our endeavors.

The LGBTQ Center and the Sarah Doyle Women's Center share staff and resources to support students around issues of gender and sexuality. The Sarah Doyle Women’s Center (SDWC), established at Brown in 1974, seeks to provide a comfortable, yet challenging place for students, faculty, and staff to examine the multitude of issues around gender.  The SDWC offers programs and services for all members of the Brown community, and is a site for research into and exploration of gender issues that extend into and beyond the classroom.
