LGBTQ and Allies Committee

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ) and Allies Committee develops strategies, initiatives and programs for acceptance and inclusion of the LGBTQ community. Our mission is to increase visibility of the LGBTQ community and its needs by:

  • Reaching out to various constituencies, especially our allies, across the University.
  • Developing programs of action and education to foster consciousness raising and encourage sensitivity.
  • Engaging our individual academic units and departments to build respect and support for our community.
