In December 2013, after years of planning, the LGBT* Center was opened on the upper level of the Maucker Union, in the heart of the UNI campus. Our location within the Student Involvement Center is also home to the Northern Iowa Student Government (NISG), Military & Veteran Student Services, and other student support resources.
As a University resource center the mission of the LGBT* Center is to "...promote healthy, engaged, successful LGBT* students and allies. The LGBT* Center provides a safe space, resources, and educational opportunities to advocate for an inclusive community." The asterisk in the title is used as an inclusive symbol, recognizing not all identities are described by the LGBT acronym.
