About Us

The college environment often offers a unique space in which students can further develop their understanding of their own identities as well as the identities of others.

LGBTQ* Services strives to provide opportunities to raise awareness and educate about gender, sexuality and LGBTQ* communities. We strive to create a welcoming, supportive and inclusive campus where students are able and encouraged to bring their entire selves to the table.
