Sexual and Gender Diversity Resource Center
Welcome to the SGDRC
The Sexual and Gender Diversity Resource Center at New Mexico State
University was created to provide a safe place on campus for the gay, lesbian,
bisexual, transgender, and questioning community and those who support them. Our
Center is a welcoming place for all students, faculty, and staff on campus with
special emphasis on providing resources and support for the GLBTQ community. We
have many resources available in our office, including information on scholarships, an extensive library of books, DVDs and magazines pertaining
to GLBTQ issues, publications and literature from local and national GLBTQ organizations, and a computer lab with 8 computers for use.
So come by and check out our resources or just relax and socialize in the
lounge area! Our staff is friendly and knowledgeable and look forward to helping
you in any way they can.
