Gay-Straight Alliance

Mission Statement

Genders & Sexualities Alliance or Gay-Straight Alliance (GSAs) is a club that works to improve school climate for all students (including allies), regardless of sexual identity or gender identity/expression.

One goal of the GSA is to provide students with leadership development, focusing on activism that prioritizes building alliances not only across sexual orientation and gender identity lines, but also across race, ethnicity, and class lines.Pride Week Logo

The GSA is about coalition-building, and we strive to give the university community the language and space to build a supportive environment for all students across all identities. We also want to make sure students who identify as LGBTQIA+ have the support they need to succeed in school and ultimately graduate and go out into the world.

Ultimately, the GSA strives to prepare students for the world outside of school, to have the confidence they need to thrive, to know how to advocate for themselves and each other, to understand how to seek support, and to recognize allies.
