The Commission promotes Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Ally (LGBTQA) visibility, educates on issues of diversity, and advocates for equality, particularly on issues related to sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.
The LGBTQA Commission continues to support the campus and area LGBTQ communities via advocacy, education, and resources. We will establish and maintain a permanent high-visibility campus resource center with a full time staff that will serve as the home of our initiatives.
