Mission of the QRC
The Queer Resource Center's mission is to facilitate a campus community that intentionally advocates for, supports and empowers students, faculty, staff, and alumni of all sexualities, sexes, gender identities and gender expressions. We conduct educational outreach as well as provide a safe, welcoming space that offers both academic and personal support to Portland Community College's LGBTQQ and ally communities.
