LGBTQIA+ Resources for OWU Students

The Ohio Wesleyan community is comprised of many diverse groups. Among these groups are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and queer/questioning persons. Their presence is not a question but a clearly demonstrated fact. Like any other minority group, LGBTIQA persons face certain issues that the majority does not, including violence, discrimination, invisibility, and isolation. Thus, there is a need within the Ohio Wesleyan community for a service that comprehensively and safely addresses these concerns. The purpose of the Spectrum Resource Center is to help provide LGBTIQA persons, their friends, their families, and allies with tools to address LGBTIQA-related issues and to assist in educating the campus community at large.
