One of our goals at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Patricia A. Doyle Center is to provide updated, relevant resources on gender and sexuality.
These resources can help students, faculty, staff, parents, and community members to feel welcome and included on the UW-Platteville campus.
Stop by the Doyle Center in 130 Warner Hall, where you can find resources that address sexual health and consent, lesbian and gay activism and history, LGBTQ communities of color, transgender identities and experiences, identities in fiction and science fiction, academic theories of gender and sexuality, and many other topics.
We are also working to develop our online resources. We have an active Facebook page, and we welcome suggestions for relevant online content to add to our website. If you have ideas about resources, physical or virtual, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
