Swarthmore's Intercultural Center (IC) provides programs and services that support the personal and intellectual development of Asian American, LatinX, multiracial, Native American, queer (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender), low-income, international, and first-generation college students. In addition, the IC promotes systemic change toward a multicultural perspective across the institution, and fosters community-building and collaboration among diverse groups both within and outside of the college.

There are many additional student resources at Swarthmore, including the Black Cultural Center; Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Development; Intercultural Center; Interfaith Center; International Student Services; Title IX Office; and the Women's Resource Center. 

LGBTQ+ students can also find off-campus resources in the greater Philadelphia area and nationally. This site is intended to help students answer questions, explore identity, and find resources for an array of life stages, such as LGBTQ+ scholarships and LGBTQ+ friendly careers, among others.
