About Us

Rainbow Resource Center Mission

 The Rainbow Resource Center seeks to educate the greater SCU community and empower Santa Clara students, faculty, staff, and alumni who self-identify within the wide spectrum of sexual orientations and gender identities. 

These identities include, but are not limited to: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Pansexual, Asexual, and Ally (LGBTQQIPAA). 

The Center serves as a centralized, designated space for students to design and coordinate educational events and training geared towards promoting greater levels of understanding and inclusiveness on campus. The Center maintains a safe, inclusive, and welcoming environment for people of all identities.
