LGBTQ* Services Affinity Groups Coming Soon!
Affinity groups are for folks who share identities to share space and experiences with one another and discuss LGBTQ* topics.
Affinity groups are not meant as a replacement for counseling services and are not open for research or observation.
We are recruiting volunteers from the campus community to hold affinity groups at the LGBTQ* Center for the Spring semester. It is a weekly one-hour commitment during regular operating hours Monday through Friday. These groups do not have a specific structure and can be based around discussions, activities, playing games, or just hanging out with people and developing a community. We will provide guidance on running these groups.
If you identify as LGBTQ* and would like to create a space for shared identities to meet, please click on the link below.
Listed below are the affinity groups offered last semester, Fall 2022. Not all affinity groups will be available for this semster, Spring 2023.
