As a student-centered unit we share an unwavering commitment to creating a community of engaged scholars that is open, safe, affirming, and inclusive for people of all sexualities, gender identities, and gender expressions.

To achieve this we provide educational outreach, programming, support, and resources intended to raise awareness about concepts related to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) individuals, and issues. Through education, training, and intentional conversation(s), we endeavor to eliminate homophobic, transphobic, and heterosexist attitudes and behaviors and to increase the number of active allies. As a unit of the Center for Student Diversity & Inclusion, LGBTQ+ Initiatives assists the university in establishing an environment committed to diversity.
