ODE Resources

The ODE is proud to provide several resources for the Southwestern University community to help support students that are historically underrepresented and for the entire campus community.   More information and details are provided below about each resource. 

All-Gender Restrooms

Through the efforts of a campaign led by students in SU Planned Piratehood, SU Fed Up, and the ODE, All Gender restrooms were established on campus in 2015. A map indicating the locations of these restrooms can be found here

Cross-Cultural Center Library

The Cross Cultural Center, located in Prothro Lounge 234, is home to the Diversity Resource Library. With over 1,000 books, DVDs, and CDs, this library is an excellent resource open to all members of the Southwestern community.
