Guidance, Perspective and Support (GPS)
GPS is a tool for LGBTQ and similarly-identified students to use as they are navigating their way out of the closet.
The Spectrum Center GPS Program provides students with Guidance to helpful information and resources,
Perspective of a fellow student who has experience with coming out, and Support for coming out. The GPS
Program is not intended to take the place of professional counseling, but rather to be a supplemental or
alternative option for students seeking assistance with coming out. To sign-up to be paired with a GPS mentor
