The LGBTQ+ Welcome Reception Presents Opportunity to Make Alliances on Campus

CHICO, Calif.- The Associated Students Gender and Sexuality Equity Center (GSEC) and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion are hosting an LGBTQ+ Welcome Reception for students who are looking to build new alliances and friendships on campus. The reception gives students a chance to learn about the services and resources on campus, along with getting to know the faculty, staff, and students in the LGBTQ+ community. There will be a raffle and free food available at the event. Please come join us on Wednesday, September 25th, from 3:30pm-5:00pm in Selvester’s CafĂ© on campus for new friendships, alliances, and some fun!
The reception will be kicked off with an introduction made by our LGBTQ+ Program Coordinator, Sarena Kirk, and the LGBTQ+ faculty and staff of California State University, Chico. Students will have the opportunity to hear about, and network with, community and campus organizations who will speak briefly about their programs and upcoming events in addition to informational tabling. Attendees can enjoy Roots Catering vegetarian appetizers and raffle prizes provided throughout the event.
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is committed to cultivating a culturally inclusive environment where diversity of thought and expression are valued, respected, appreciated and celebrated. It serves as a resource to our campus community by providing information, referrals, advocacy, coordination and support for diversity-related events, activities, initiatives and discussions.
The Associated Students Gender and Sexuality Equity Center [GSEC] is a student run activist organization which strives to empower all students through its two programs: the Women’s Program and the LGBTQ+ Program. The GSEC challenges societal norms that have been used to oppress and marginalize by providing opportunities for leadership, personal development, and referral services. We offer a safe and inclusive space where the campus and community can effectively support the academic mission of the university.
