Posted on 23 Sep 2014 at 3:22pm

SMUThe Southern Methodist University Women Center has been renamed the Women and LGBT Center.

The Center hasn’t changed its mission or added any programs, because LGBT programs have come under the Women’s Center since the 1980s, according to the school’s newspaper The Daily Campus.

Spectrum, the school’s LGBT group, has been based at the Women Center for years. Other programs at the center include the Allies program for students, faculty and staff “to show tangible support of the LGBT community on campus.” Participation includes a two-hour training and ongoing educational workshops.

The Every Student Campaign works with students on issues of discrimination.

The Women and LGBT Center is located on the third floor of Hughes Trigg.
