Rainbow Road

The Rainbow Road seeks to support the variety of identities that no acronym could adequately include or sufficiently cover. No matter where someone identifies in the spectrum of sexual orientation and/or gender diversity, the Georgia Southern University Counseling Center wants to continually commit to supporting all members of the gender and/or sexual diversity community as well as our LGBTQ+ students, staff, and faculty. The Counseling Center’s mission and work is rooted in the idea that the spirit of inclusiveness, a global perspective, and a sense of community as essential conditions of life.

The work is on all of us to create and maintain a safe, inclusive environment on campus. We have included resources here for members of the LGBTQ+ community as well as resources for individuals who seek an active role in allyship.
