Historically, the student organization dedicated to uplifting the LGBTQ+ community at Eastern was QUEST, Queer Unity for Eastern Students. The club is currently inactive, but the Resource Center Staff is excited to connect students of any levels wishing to revamp QUEST, or start a brand new LGBTQ+ based student organization. Please email the Coordinator, Amy, at [email protected] for more information.
Additionally, more information about starting a new student organization or what organizations currently exist at EMU can be found by visiting Campus Life’s website.
The Center staff consists of one graduate student and a number of undergraduate students based on the Center’s needs. Both opportunities are typically filled during the Winter term for the following academic year. When actively searching for additional staff, applications will be listed below. Please email the Coordinator, Amy, at [email protected] for more information.

You can get class credit for your involvement with the resource center in a practical, job-based capacity. While an internship experience is hands-on, this is more directly hands-on and should be applicable to exploring job opportunities for your future (like in higher education and student affairs, or social work, for example). Your resource center practicum experience will be tailored with Amy to fit the needs of your growth and development, as well as the needs of the resource center.
Simply contact us and get started! Volunteering at the resource center is designed to get you connected with the programs and services that we provide, while also helping the resource center grow and offer as much as we possibly can. A volunteer experience requires no form and only requires your commitment!
