The Henderson Springs LGBT Center officially opened on October 3, 2008. This Center was founded to provide resources, support, information, and a welcoming atmosphere for LGBT individuals and their allies. The Center is operated by a graduate assistant and a dedicated group of student volunteers.

Volunteers offer time, dedication, and an open mind to serve the needs of the Appalachian community. Student desk shift volunteers go through a training process that enables them to accurately address the needs of visitors and share resources and referrals necessary to answer any questions. Student volunteers are discreet and do not discriminate, but cannot guarantee legal confidentiality and must conform to the regulations of ASU in reporting crimes. If confidentiality is desired, our volunteers will make every effort to refer individuals to a more appropriate organization.

Students may also volunteer for Center events throughout the year, either as an event coordinator or as part of an event committee. We look forward to seeing you often at the Center. We are located in the Plemmons Student Union on the first floor in room 106, just off of the International Hallway, next door to the ASU Women's Center.
