The Atlas Center aims to provides a safe and welcoming campus environment for LGBTQ+ students and allies through education to better understand the diverse sexual and gender identities and experiences that exist at Nazareth College.



The Atlas Center envisions a Nazareth community that actively addresses oppression in all its forms and affirms, advocates and holistically embraces people across the spectrum of gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation, including their intersectional experiences and perspectives.
