Open Door Discussions

Approximately three times each semester, the Milton E. Ford LGBT Resource Center hosts Open Door Discussions (ODDs). These student-led presentations cover an LGBTQ-related topic and then encourage dialogue with participants. All GVSU students, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend! ODDs are INT 100/201 approved, so students can attend and participate for class credit. Open Door Discussion are engaging, informative, and fun! We hope you can join us.
