Student Resources

We like to think of our program as a center for all things related to gender, sexuality, advocacy, and inclusivity.

Student Groups

We work with student organizations including the following.

Lactation Center

Located in the IAB room 1023 on the Statesboro Campus, this is a private and comfortable space for lactation with two changing tables, and free supplies (clothing, books, blankets, etc.). Please come use the space as needed. A “reserved” sign can be placed on the door when in use.

Please email questions to:
Dr. Lisa A. Costello

The campus map identifies the location of gender-inclusive restrooms on the Statesboro and Savannah campuses. Click “By Type” on either map, then check the box for “All-gender Restroom Locations”.
