Our mission is to promote equity and social justice for the LGBTQ* community. This is critical to the University's mission to ensure a high-quality education for all students and a supportive and productive environment for all members of ISU's diverse community. This is achieved via its three main components: academic, campus student and personnel services, and community outreach. We serve our constituents by coordinating, publicizing, and supporting campus and community efforts related to LGBTQ people and their allies. We also link the campus community to relevant LGBTQ organizations, events, and initiatives on local, national, and international levels.
*The acronym LGBTQ, as we use it here, is inclusive of people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, genderqueer, questioning, intersex, and allies, across differences of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, ability, social class, age, nationality, and transnationality.
Please contact us to let us know how we can assist you or to find out how to get involved at firstname.lastname@example.org.
