Galerstein Gender Center

Education

The Galerstein Gender Center provides learning opportunities on LGBT+ and gender equity topics. Our presentations are intersectional and promote awareness of the impact social and cultural constructions of gender, as well as systems of privilege and oppression, have on communities and individual experiences. They also challenge participants to engage in LGBT+ and gender equity allyship.


The GGC Equity Excellence Program

The GGC Equity Excellence Program charts the progression and growth of UT Dallas students, staff, and faculty by recognizing their contribution and commitment to gender equity through participation in GGC events and programs. By attending at least one event from each of the five categories, contributors will receive a certificate of commitment to gender equity.
