Values

  • All students, staff and faculty are welcome.
  • Our work takes into account the intersections of students’ identities, including, but not limited to, gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, ability, faith and class.
  • Students’ needs, interests and passions are the drivers of our programming and initiatives We seek to educate the entire campus community on sexuality and gender issues as well as provide space for specific groups to explore and affirm their identities.
  • Deepening and developing partnerships across departments makes our work more effective and far-reaching.
