LGBTQ Resources

Centenary College has a statement in its admission policies, loan programs, and other college programs, policies, and activities that states “Centenary does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or national or ethnic origin.” This policy protects LGBTQ individuals from discrimination by college policies and officials on the basis of sexual orientation, although the policy does not explicitly include gender identity.
