The mission statement of the QRC is five-fold:
- Personal and Academic Achievement.
The QRC encourages lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, allies, faculty, and staff to expand their personal, educational, and professional opportunities at the University. We provide educational access and resources for queer students and the entire campus.
- Student Welfare and Support.

- Student Advocacy.

- Campus Outreach and Education.
