Happy Pride Month!

Providing a safe, inclusive and brace space for students that identify or ally with the LGBTQ+ community. Gender fluid, non-binary, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, two spirit, third gender and questioning individuals all welcome.  

We also provide a space for cisgender women who have experienced systemic gender-based oppression or have been denied access to structural rights.

Queer Studies Minor

Queer Studies is an interdisciplinary field of inquiry that examines the histories, lives, identities, experiences and struggles of queer people. Queerness is an umbrella term that is broadly used to refer to individuals and identities that are (currently) understood as culturally non-normative, especially of genders and sexualities such as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, asexual, and others. This minor compliments a variety of majors and disciplines.

Learning for Life

We build a community where students feel accepted, included, and safe.​ Learning for Life is here to connect students to on and off campus resources and opportunities to empower and overcome life obstacles on their journey to graduation.
