GEC Mission


The mission of the OU Gender + Equality Center is to foster social justice by advocating for the rights of women and LGBTQ students, empowering those without a voice, and challenging inequality. 

Best In State for LGBTQ Students

"[O]ptions may be slim when choosing an LGBTQ-friendly university to attend. While there are a number of great LGBTQ-friendly schools throughout the country, many students don’t have the opportunity to venture out of state to attend college. Some students can’t afford out of state tuition, and others want to stay close to family and friends."

The University of Oklahoma received the honor of Best in State for LGBTQ Students for 2018! Click here to learn more.
