Jim Chalgren

The Center at Minnesota State University, Mankato owes its existence in great part to the strength, bravery and dedication of Jim Chalgren.


The LGBT Center resource library has over 500 volumes available which provide resources to the campus community on issues such as "coming out," LGBT history, education, family, healthy sexuality and more. Please browse our books or DVD collection.

A place to feel at home in.

The LGBT Center began as a small haven for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender students a few decades ago. Today, we’re a valued resource on an increasingly diverse campus.

We’ve gone through plenty – from the early and often lonely strides of activist Jim Chalgren to the campus celebrating being listed in The Advocate’s top 100 LGBT-friendly universities.

We remain committed to maintaining a peaceful and comfortable environment for students to achieve their goals. To that end, we organize a number of community events, education panels and more.
