Intersectionality Resource Center

This is a diverse world we live in and we must be willing to learn how to live in it peacefully.  As humans we hold many identities and they intersect with our lives, relationships, work, school, and society.  At the Intersectionality Resource Center we provide a space and resources for student to reflect and educate themselves on identities they may hold or identities held by our fellow humans.
