Hours dependent on staff availability
We are committed to creating an equitable and accessible environment for students, whether that be via all-gender and gender-expansive housing options, name change processes, or all-gender restrooms.
Connect with Resources
Resources for 2SLGBTQIA3+ students encourage holistic well-being and academic success through mental, medical, and community care. Scholarships and other financial assistance are based on need and/or merit. Students are also invited to apply for LGBTESS-sponsored conferences. In addition to our programs and services, there are off-campus organizations dedicated to advocating and resourcing 2SLGBTQIA3+ folks.
Our student-driven outreach teams celebrate, educate, empower, and support 2SLGBTQIA3+ students. Whether organizing events, developing new initiatives, or collaborating with campus organizations, one of the priorities of the LGBTESS staff is to support students in fostering community.
Support 2SLGBTQIA3+ Students
Effectively supporting 2SLGBTQIA3+ students is an on-going process which requires self-awareness, knowledge, and skills. LGBTESS hosts Queer+ Accomplice Coalition (QAC) training once a term to jump-start faculty and staff in this process and provides resources to support continued learning and advocacy practices.
