Welcome to the URI LGBTQ Center

Information Technology Services is involved in several on-going Diversity Initiatives. Instructional Technology and Media Services staff have been creating a variety of short videos to help increase recognition of the many ways we are enriched by our own community. Links will be posted soon. There have also been several diversity-themed student shows hosted in the Chafee TV Studio.
