As a component of the University of Tennessee, the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) Resource Center recognizes the importance of research to expand knowledge. The Center is committed to protecting human subjects engaged in research conducted or supported by the University.

Prior to initiating any research on human subjects at or associated with the Center, investigators must first obtain the approval of the University IRB through their established policies and procedures. Only research approved by UT’s IRB and the Center’s staff will be permitted on-site. Off-site research soliciting participants via e-mail must also have IRB approval from the researcher’s home institution.

For more information on research policies please visit the Office of Research and Engagement web site.

Currently, the Center has one meeting room that can seat around 12 people.  It has a white board (the room does not have a projector or screen).  The room can be reserved for any hours when the Center is open.  Please contact lgbtacenter@utk.edu at least one week in advance to reserve the room.


“We believe the center is a vital resource to have on campus for all students, faculty, and staff. We’re glad OUTreach is here!” —Leticia Flores, faculty member
