About Us

The Yale University Office of LGBTQ Resources is a community center and partners to maintain a coalition of LGBTQ organizations across campus and in the community. 

Mission

Our mission is to support and empower students, faculty, staff, and alumni of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and expressions to strengthen and unite our Yale University community.  We accomplish this through a variety of community, education, and advocacy initiatives.

Vision

We envision a stronger and braver Yale University community that is radically inclusive of all sexualities, gender identities, and expressions.

Land Acknowledgement

Thanks to the ongoing advocacy efforts of staff and students in the Native American Cultural Center, Yale has a land acknowledgement to honor and respect the original stewards of the lands and waterways we occupy.  

Yale University acknowledges that indigenous peoples and nations, including Mohegan, Mashantucket Pequot, Eastern Pequot, Schaghticoke, Golden Hill Paugussett, Niantic, and the Quinnipiac and other Algonquian speaking peoples, have stewarded through generations the lands and waterways of what is now the state of Connecticut.  We honor and respect the enduring relationship that exists between these peoples and nations and this land.
