On-Campus Resources 

Included below is a brief list of on-campus resources available to students, faculty, and staff. This list certainly excludes many other members of the Davidson College community who are willing to discuss issues of sexuality. For instance, many professors have a HRC sticker outside of their offices, indicating an openness toward discussing GLBTQ issues with students. Nevertheless, the following resources are extremely useful.
