The Gender & Sexuality Equity Center (GSEC) is a student-run activist organization. Your involvement in our program/events enriches the campus and your education.
The Associated Students Gender & Sexuality Equity Center (GSEC) is a student-run activist organization, that strives to empower all students through its four programs: the Women’s Program, the LGBTQ+ Program, the Outreach Program, and the Trans Program. The GSEC challenges societal norms that have been used to oppress and marginalize by providing opportunities for leadership, personal development, and referral services. We offer a safe and inclusive space where the campus and community can effectively support the academic mission of the university.
The Outreach Program provides equal marketing for Women’s, LGBTQ+, and Trans programming in addition to facilitating educational opportunities for the Chico State community. The Outreach Program supports students’ training and innovation in public relations and social media promotion for events and services the GSEC offers to under-served communities and the campus at large.
The Trans Program promotes accessibility, safety, and empowerment for all trans and gender non-conforming students and community members by challenging the gender binary and the institutional and interpersonal oppression it creates. The program uses education, advocacy, and community building to bring visibility and support for all gender identities.
The Women’s Program utilizes feminist ideologies to offer educational opportunities and programs that are centered in women’s experiences to create and sustain a university environment that promotes the personal, educational and professional growth of women.
The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ) Program is dedicated to promoting a safe environment for people of all sexual and gender identities through educational opportunities and programs.
We provide a safe, accepting environment and work to empower all students through awareness-raising events, services and referrals.
