In December 2013, after years of planning, Gender & Sexuality Services was opened on the upper level of the Maucker Union, in the heart of the UNI campus. Our location within the Plaza level of the Maucker Union is also home to the Northern Iowa Student Government (NISG), Student Life, Military & Veteran Student Services, the Center for Multicultural Education, and International Student Services.
As a University resource center the mission of Gender & Sexuality Services is to "...promote healthy, engaged, successful LGBTQ+ students and allies. Gender & Sexuality Services provide a safe space, resources, and educational opportunities to advocate for an inclusive community."
Emily Harsch, (she or they), Gender & Sexuality Services Coordinator
Emily serves as the first full time staff member for LGBTQ+ students, allies, the University community and the Cedar Valley. Emily works in an advocacy role across campus as a resource to LGBTQ+ students and their allies as the main point of contact for Gender & Sexuality Services. Emily manages and maintains the Safe Zone Ally Program, coordinates the Center's annual events, and works directly with students.
