The K.C. Potter Center
About the Center
The Office of LGBTQI Life, located within the K.C. Potter Center, is a cultural center and a place of affirmation for individuals of all identities, and a resource for information and support about gender and sexuality. Students, faculty, staff, and alumni are encouraged to stop by during our office hours, from 8am-5pm, Monday-Friday.
Comfortable couches, a useable kitchen, an extensive LGBTQI DVD collection, and lively conversations are among the many reasons to visit us. The Office is also open during our student group meetings, programs, and events. We are staffed by three full-time professionals, two graduate assistants, and a team of student receptionists. Vanderbilt groups and offices can also reserve the center for your events and programs using the reservation form below.

About our namesake: K.C. Potter
K.C. Potter, Vanderbilt’s long-serving dean of residential and judicial affairs, retired after 36 years at the University as a student and administrator. Potter cared deeply for all Vanderbilt students, particularly marginalized students, including Vanderbilt’s LGBTQI population. Potter was the first administrator to reach out to them, give them a voice, and help them stake their claim of campus life. For almost 10 years, Potter let Vanderbilt’s LGBTQI student group, Lambda, meet at his home on west side row. K.C. now spends his days happily working on his farm with his partner Richard.
