Mission, Vision, and Values

Mission & Vision

The Yale LGBTQ Center is one of over 375 networked LGBTQ Community Centers across the United States and beyond.  We work to maintain a coalition of LGBTQ organizations across the university campus and within the community. 


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.


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