LGBTA Resource Center

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Ally (LGBTA) Resource Center at NC Central University serves as a vital link by which LGBTQIA+ individuals can find a sense of community and everyone can learn about LGBTQIA+ identities and culture.

Eagles Rise above to Set the Standard

Since opening its doors on April 9, 2013, NCCU’s LGBTA Resource Center has been setting the standard for supporting LGBTQIA+ identifying students across the country. When students connect with the center, they find leadership opportunities, professional development, educational programming, advocacy and family.
