The North Carolina State University, Office of the Provost, Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Center (GLBT Center) Records contain a t-shirt in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the center as well as digital files pertaining to the activities of the Center. Topics covered by the digital files include organizations and clubs, events and event planning, and workshops and trainings given by the Center.

The NC State Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Center provides students of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions with resources and programming to raise awareness, promote respect, and create a culture of equity, inclusion and social justice. The Center's stated mission is to engage, develop, and empower members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender communities and their allies. This is accomplished through lectures, counseling services, workshops, and developing supportive communities. Some of the recurring events the Center sponsors include the GLBT Symposium, Trans Awareness Week, Alternative Spring Break - San Francisco, and the Lavendar Graduation.

After a forum on the treatment of GLBT students on campus, the Center was established in 2008 in the Talley Student Center. NC State was the second university in the North Carolina system to open a center specifically for the LGBT community.
