LGBTQ Programs

What Is LGBTQ Programming?

By creating educational programs, fostering cross-campus collaborations, and advocating for the needs and concerns of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer individuals, this office serves as a resource and support system for the LGBTQ students, staff, and faculty while educating the larger UHCL community about LGBT identities. Additionally, we strive to promote the personal growth, development, and empowerment of LGBT and their straight and cisgender advocates across campus.

In accordance with the university's mission to provide fair and equitable learning opportunities, we strive to cultivate a safe, accepting, and supportive campus environment which respects the diversity within our community. We encourage all members of the campus community to participate in the programs provided.
