strategy for making this happen, regardless of the form it takes or the means chosen for implementa 
tion, should contain the following elements:
1. A clear message from UCLA indicating that it values the lesbian and gay members of its
campus community;
2. A physical location ( safe place ) that is  lesbian and gay positive,  a place in which stu 
dents, faculty, and staff may be comfortable, regardless of their sexual orientation, cultural
background, or ethnic heritage;
3. A clearinghouse for resources and materials to educate the campus about sexual differences
and the lives of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, and other sexual minorities;
4. Mechanisms for disseminating resource materials and other information, both among mem 
bers of the non heterosexual community and to the campus at large;
5. Opportunities for peer and professional counseling, advising, and referral for students, facul 
ty, and staff who are dealing with issues related to sexual orientation; and
6. Opportunities for role modeling and mentoring.
One program idea that encompasses these essential elements involves the establishment of an office
or center which (1) provides support services to lesbian and gay students, faculty, and staff; (2) offers
assistance to campus individuals who are questioning or struggling with their sexual identity; and (3)
educates the campus community about the lives, issues, and concerns of the non heterosexual popula 
tion. Offices and centers designed to address matters of concern to sexual minorities have proven suc 
cessful on other university campuses.
Other Campus Approaches
Recently, the President's Select Committee for Lesbian and Gay Concerns at Rutgers, the State
University of New Jersey, released a report entitled  In Every Classroom,  which includes findings
from a national survey of college and university programs for sexual minorities. Among the various
campus policies and programs described in the report are descriptions of offices/resource centers for
gay men, lesbians, and bisexuals at three major universities: University of Massachusetts at Amherst,
University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, and University of Pennsylvania. These descriptions, which sug 
gest some ways in which such an office or center might function at UCLA, are provided in Appendix
A of this document.
It is the strong belief of members the Chancellor's Advisory Committee on the Gay and Lesbian
Community, the faculty staff Network, GALA, and other campus groups that the best way to address
the concerns described above is through the establishment of a Lesbian and Gay Community Resource
Center, to be located somewhere on campus. Such a center would be designed to meet the special
needs and interests of a campus population that is ethnically, culturally and sexually diverse. It is pro
