Re-Envisioning Project

Designing Space to Meet Student Needs

To support the needs of students today and tomorrow, the director of the LGBTQ+ Culture Center, in collaboration with students, worked with the Indiana University Office of Space Planning to envision a new layout for the center that is welcoming, functional, and student friendly. These efforts include a new student cafe and lounge, revamped library space; a new Counseling and HIV Testing room; an updated conference room with new furniture, functionality, and capacity; and a room for the Gender Affirming Closet.

Renovations to address function and increase student-friendly spaces will be made possible through a combination of support from individual alums and friends of IU, matching funds, grants, and institutional support.
