Queer Resource Center

The mission of the Queer Resource Center (QRC) is to support the queer and trans students of Amherst College. The QRC seeks to empower the lives of queer and trans students and provide a safe, intentional, open, and confidential atmosphere where students can gather openly and discuss relevant issues/topics. Through dynamic programming and educational outreach, the QRC seeks to improve the campus climate for queer and trans students and advocate for the respect and safety of all members of the campus community.
