LGBTQA in the STEM Community

LQBTQA Initiatives - Office of Student Life Multicultural Center

The guiding philosophy of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) initiatives through the Multicultural Center inspire reflective thought and increase awareness of identity and community through an understanding of sexual orientation and gender identity.

The programming, leadership development, training, educational resources and service-learning opportunities enhance the learning community of Ohio State students, staff, faculty and the Central Ohio community toward extraordinary experiences for all.

LGBTQ programming initiatives further the academic mission of the University and the mission of the Multicultural Center through courageous dialogues, intentional presentations and community-based learning.

For more information, including allied mentoring, student groups, leadership opportunities and more, please visit the Office of Student Life Multicultural Center.
