Philosophy and Mission
The Stonewall Resource Center (SRC) was originally established as the Human/Gay Resource Center in 1986. It is named in commemoration of the Stonewall Riots of 1969, when New York City police raided a Greenwich Village gay bar called the Stonewall Inn. The rebellion gave birth to the Gay and Lesbian Pride movement in the United States.
The Stonewall Resource Center exists as a confidential safe space to serve the campus' Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning community and their Allies. Our primary focus is to provide resources and information about GLBTQ issues and to facilitate educational programming and activities on campus. The Stonewall Resource Center is also a meeting space for numerous student organizations and our library is open to all students, for both personal and academic needs.
Located in Younker Pit, the SRC may be reserved for meetings, programming, and other needs. Contact the SRC by phone or email [srcenter] to inquire about reservations. Our library of over 1,500 books, magazines and videos is open to all Grinnell College community members.
The Stonewall Resource Center is staffed by volunteer monitors during the following hours of operation:
Sunday - Thursday 5:00pm - 12:00am
Saturday 1:00pm - 4:00pm
The student staff of the SRC are available to discuss questions, concerns, and anything else that may be on your mind and can be reached during our office hours, which are posted outside of the SRC, or via email (email@example.com). When we are not in the office, monitors at the SRC are student volunteers who would love to chat with you. Stop by and say hello some time!
