Leadership Council

The Queer & Trans Leadership Council

The Queer & Trans Leadership Council is an advocacy and consultive group comprised of students, faculty, and staff who are committed to LGBTQ access, equity, and inclusion. Its purpose is to provide representatives from key areas and stakeholder groups across campus to consult with each other, the Lead Coordinator of LGBTQ Campus Life and deputy representative(s) of our cultural center. This group is assembled by invitation of the Lead Coordinator to serve as a focus group to enhance communication, marketing, collaboration, and collective visioning with regards to LGBTQ programming, services, and resources both on and off-campus. It is not a governing body but rather a collective coalition representing various areas of LGBTQ Campus Life.
