LGBTQ Initiatives

The Student Life Multicultural Center’s LGBTQ Initiatives support and advocate for the unique academic and social needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) students and communities across Ohio State.

We nurture reflective thought and provide a welcoming and inclusive space for all members of campus to explore issues related to sexual and gender identity, learn more about LGBTQ communities, and engage students in meaningful experiences that promote allyship and inclusion.
