Our Mission

The Gender and Sexuality Center provides leadership and expertise on diversity, equity, and inclusion; education and training on LGBTQ+ identities; and community and resources for LGBTQ+ people and allies.

Founded in 2014, the GSC operates under the auspices of the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI). ODEI is committed to working collaboratively across the institution to bring about positive and equitable social change.

The Gender and Sexuality Center is directed by Julián Cancino, who joined Brandeis in July 2020.
