Newly appointed Rainbow Center director Brian Edwards delivered a lecture Wednesday focusing on how LGBTQ resources at colleges create safer and more welcoming campuses.

The lecture was laid-back, with students sitting on couches. Edwards was informal. He admitted he’s still learning the history of the Rainbow Center and encouraged students to correct him or add facts about the center he didn’t mention.

“I welcome your input and your voice,” Edwards said.
