Following a series of homophobic incidents on campus in 1985, the Program for Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual Concerns was established at UMass Amherst as an administrative office in Student Affairs. The program was renamed The Stonewall Center in 1995. Only the third center of its kind on a college campus, the Stonewall Center has provided the campus and surrounding community with cultural and educational programming through speakers, films, video and book library, Speakers Bureau on LGBT issues, referrals and support, advocacy and community outreach.
The records of the Stonewall Center include documentation of day to day operations, including phone logs, memos, and budget information, as well as posters and press releases for events, publications, campus and external reports, training manuals, surveys, newspaper clippings, and ephemera such as banners, tee-shirts, and buttons.
