What does the CA QRC offer?

Education and events

The QRC provides intersectional training opportunities and events programming for the PCC campus community about issues pertaining to marginalized sexual and gender identities.

Our activities include but are not limited to trans, gender expansive, lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, asexual, intersex, pansexual, and polyamorous communities. These trainings and events serve the purpose of increasing knowledge, understanding, and empathy for diverse sexualities and genders.

Advocacy

The QRC advocates for institutional equity on behalf of Queer and Trans students, staff, and faculty. The QRC is available for departmental or individual consultations about creating inclusive and welcoming and environments for these populations.

Support

As a diversity retention center, the QRC student advocates and coordinator provide support, resources, and referrals to Queer and Trans students with the ultimate goal of supporting students to achieve their academic goals.
