Affiliated Groups

The Office of LGBTQ Resources hosts numerous affiliated groups which include registered student, faculty, staff or alumni organizations as well as local or national partner organizations that are integral to our mission.

Our affiliated groups provide services and coordinated activities that reflect our mission and values and represent our large, diverse,  and multifaceted campus community. These groups and their members assist in the development and strategic direction of our cultural center and help us build vibrant community spaces in our office and across campus.  

Affiliated Groups are able to:

  • schedule and reserve our Cafe or lounge spaces for related meetings or events for free

  • promote their events on our website,  digital signage, in weekly newsletters, and social media

  • connect with the coalition of resident groups to work on collaborations and co-sponsorships

  • have representation that serves on the Leadership Roundtable Advisory
  • receive advising for organizational development and event planning

  • build stronger connections to local, state, and national community partners

NOTE: Information about the 2022-2023 Affiliated Groups is being updated as we confirm with group leaders and volunteers.
