Students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning (LGBTQ) are at higher risk of discrimination and psychological distress, including suicidal ideation, than their heterosexual peers. In order to create a climate where students feel safe, are willing to participate fully and are less likely to drop out, campuses need to implement programming that addresses harassment and bias.

Benefits:

  • Reduces risk of violence and self-harm
  • Provides a cost-effective tool for building cultural competency and communications skills among students to support their LGBTQ peers
  • Promotes tolerance and acceptance within the campus community
  • Improves social cohesion, participation, academic success, and retention
  • Builds awareness of your institution’s activities and commitment to support LGBTQ students
