The CGSE staff is comprised of highly qualified professionals trained in supporting and advising college students. Whether you have questions about exploring gender identity or difficulties finding your place on campus, the CGSE can help. One of the main goals of the CGSE is to be an advocate for all Dartmouth students, regardless of where you come from, what you believe, or how you identify. We understand that college can be a challenging and confusing time as well as a time to celebrate. The CGSE staff is here to support you with anything that comes your way.
To set up an Individual Advising Session, please contact any of the CGSE staff or blitz Center for Gender and Student Engagement.
The CGSE promotes student engagement in Living Learning Communities at Dartmouth. Living learning enhances a student's experience by bridging the in-classroom learning with the residential experience through experiential learning opportunities, time to connect with faculty, staff, and graduate students, and by providing an opportunity for exploration and reflection in everyday life. Staff at the CGSE oversee and advise two LLCs: Triangle House and Gender Equity Program Floor.
The aim of the Triangle House program is to enhance the intellectual and cultural environment of the Dartmouth College campus with particular regard to those issues which pertain to the historical and contemporary experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and allied people.
The Gender Equity Program floor allows for students of all genders to live together regardless of sex assigned at birth. While gender-inclusive housing is available in many residence halls, the Gender Equity Program Floor provides a living learning environment for residents to learn about and explore gender identity and expression in a supportive and educational environment.
The Center for Gender and Student Engagement supports a number of diverse undergraduate student organizations. We assist these organizations in event planning as well as provide group and individual advising. Many of the student organizations the CGSE helps to advise have a gender-related focus, and others do not. The CGSE hopes to provide support and advocate for any Dartmouth student organization that seeks advising from trained student affairs professionals with experience in organizational advising, event planning, and educational outreach.
For more information about having CGSE staff advise your student organization, please contact any of the CGSE staff or blitz Center for Gender and Student Engagement
