The Gender and Sexuality Campus Center provides education, outreach, advocacy, and resources for UW-Madison student communities and their allies to improve campus climate and their daily intersectional experiences.


The Gender and Sexuality Campus Center envisions a University of Wisconsin-Madison that actively addresses oppression in all its forms and affirms, includes, and celebrates people across the spectrum of gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation, including their intersectional experiences and perspectives.


The GSCC was founded in 1992 and became an Office of the Dean of Students in 2003. It celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2022! It has had several name changes, most recently from LGBT Campus Center in May 2018.

We got a brand new space in fall 2020!

Values & Operating Principles


We believe in the power of experiences at the intersections of multiple identities and that intersectionality should serve as a lens through which we implement our student-centered programming, outreach across communities, ally with others, and dismantle multiple oppressions.

Social Justice

We actively address oppressions at multiple levels with the understanding that our personal, group, and societal power and privilege shape lived experiences.


We mobilize LGBTQ students’ sense of power and agency toward leadership, growth, and social change.


We embrace the joys and complexities of having LGBTQ and ally identities.


We create and maintain inclusive and affirming student-centered spaces in which to live, work, learn, and connect with others.


We build and model sustainable relationships, coalitions, and co-curricular student-centered partnerships that promote growth across communities at UW-Madison.


We recognize the diversity of experiences, communities, and perspectives of people across the range of LGBTQ identities.
