The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Inter-sex, Ally (LGBTQIA) Studies
Learning Community is, an academic community that:
- honors the contributions and experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender
peoples and heterosexual allies
- provides a supportive and safe space for a first-year student
- allows you to connect with those who share your experiences or interests
- gives a sense of community that will enable you to achieve academic, social, professional and personal success.
In addition to the courses, activities and events during the academic year, community speakers will enable students to understand the legal, medical,
educational, and cultural issues that can arise for LGBTQIA citizens locally
and globally. This will strengthen your ability to work within and across
contexts involving these communities. The residents
live together in Cowden Hall.
