ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY

Cornell established the Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Resource Office in 1994 to serve the entire campus community: students, staff, and faculty. In the Spring of 1998, its name changed to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Resource Center. Susie Lerner (1994-1995), Carlisle Douglas (1995-1998), and Gwendolyn Dean (1998-2008) have led the office as coordinators or director.
