The GLBT Center provides a number of resources and support services including referrals and incident response follow-up. We also liaison with departments like University Housing, the Counseling Center, the Health Center, Student Conduct, the Center for Leadership Ethics and Public Service (CSLEPS), and University Police to name just a few.
Our Center staff are also trained in suicide prevention with a nationally developed program called ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training).
If you need help, have a question, or want to share an idea you can communicate with us via Google TalkBin. We have an anonymous number that you can text to and someone will respond answering your question or providing insight. The number is 919-648-1793.
The GLBT Center works in close partnership with the NC State Women’s Center to provide support for victims of domestic violence, rape, and sexual assault regardless of sexual orientation and/or gender identity. If you, or someone you know on campus, is in need of interpersonal violence services please contact the Relationship and Sexual Violence Phone Line (RSVP) at 919-618-RAPE (7273). This line is staffed 24/7, including weekends, holidays, and the summer.
The number for the national Helpline, run by the GLBT National Help Center is 1.888.843.4564 and is staffed from 4pm-midnight Monday through Friday and noon to 5pm Saturdays. NOTE: This is not an NC State staffed resource.
There are many ways to get involved on campus and to learn about the GLBT community. One such opportunity is participating in the Alternative Service Break (ASB) program through CSLEPS. The Alternative Service Break (ASB) program is a unique service-learning experience in which students engage in direct service to a community, while being immersed in the culture and customs of that community. Teams are led by student team leaders and accompanied by faculty advisors. Throughout the trip, team members participate in a variety of cultural, educational, recreational and reflective activities to enhance their service experience.
The GLBT Center partners with CSLEPS to sponsor a trip to San Francisco CA to help educate participants on the GLBT community and homelessness. We work with a number of local partners such as the National Center for Lesbian Rights, Larkin Street Youth Services, and Project Open Hand.
This is trip during spring break, so the application deadline is early in the fall semester. All potential team members are required to attend an information session, so please inquire early if you are interested.
