Janet C. Anderson Gender Resource Center

Holt Arena and surroundings

Welcome to the Idaho State University (ISU) Janet C. Anderson Gender Resource Center (GRC). The GRC has been on the ISU campus since 1998. The GRC was created by the ISU Student Senate to honor the very well respected Dean of Student Affairs, Janet C. Anderson who was retiring and whom the center is named after.

The GRC focus is to provide education and programing to students, staff and faculty and to provide a space to explore the ways gender and sexuality impact our lives and our interactions with others and the world we live in.

The GRC strives to develop a supportive and inclusive community that understands the intersections of gender and sexuality with race, ethnicity, class, ability, age, culture, nationality, and immigration status. We promote overcoming suppression of others through education and affirming and honoring people’s identities and life styles. The programming that the GRC offers is to expand knowledge on gender and sexuality and promote healthy relationships and build a strong community of individuals who care and support each other with compassion. We invite you to attend GRC events, including our annual Gender & Sexuality in Everyday Life Conference held in March and our on-going campus wide trainings for Green Dot Bystander Intervention.
