    Gender and Sexualities Alliance

    The Gender and Sexualities Alliance is committed to promoting a welcoming climate for sexual minority students (i.e., Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender) and non-sexual-minority students who are interested in working together to achieve a better understanding of the LGBTQ+ population (including queer, questioning, intersex, allies, asexual, and pansexual individuals). It strives to enhance training and research in LGBTQ+ counseling and psychotherapy. Work with students focuses on leadership development and activism that prioritizes building alliances not only across sexual orientation and gender identity lines, but also across race, ethnicity, and class lines. Resources and training are designed to facilitate coalition building.

    Multicultural Empowerment Club

    The Multicultural Empowerment Club (MEC) at Athens State University is a student-driven organization designed to address issues of diversity with the intention of fostering an environment of understanding, tolerance, and competence. Our mission is to provide a social outlet for students to meet with other students of different cultural backgrounds. To provide opportunities for English as A Second Language (ESL) students to informally work on their English skills. To work with other organizations on diversity projects. To develop and implement projects designed to expose the whole campus to multiculturalism and diversity. Involvement in the Multicultural Empowerment Club will enrich students’ learning and provide opportunities for ASU students to explore Inclusion and diversity in an interpersonal setting.
