Galerstein Gender Center


The Galerstein Gender Center provides learning opportunities on LGBT+ and gender-related topics. Our presentations are intersectional and promote awareness of the impact social and cultural constructions of gender, as well as systems of privilege and oppression, have on communities and individual experiences. They also challenge participants to engage in LGBT+ and gender-related allyship.

The GGC Equity Excellence Program

The GGC Equity Excellence Program charts the progression and growth of UT Dallas students, staff, and faculty by recognizing their contribution and commitment to gender equity through participation in GGC events and programs. By attending at least one event from each of the five categories, contributors will receive a certificate of commitment to gender equity.

Ally 2.0

Ally 2.0 is an expansion of the SAFE ZONE Ally Training offered through the Galerstein Gender Center. The program was designed to meet the needs of those who have already been trained as a SAFE ZONE Ally at UTD and would like a deeper understanding of the issues faced by members of the LGBT+ community. The program further develops the tools allies have at their disposal to combat anti-LGBT+ stigma and aggression.  We focus on a different topic each semester and this program is free for all UT Dallas students, staff and faculty that have been SAFE ZONE trained.
