The University of Southern Maine's Center for Sexualities and Gender Diversity seeks to ensure a university environment that is positive, safe and supportive for individuals of all sexual orientations and gender identities, in particular members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning and Asexual (LGBTQA+) community. We welcome the involvement of active allies in this work.
We work collaboratively with student organizations, faculty and staff, and the greater community in these endeavors. The Center for Sexualities and Gender Diversity also oversees the University Safe Zone Project.
Why the + sign in our acronym? We know that people use lots of different words, terms, and labels to talk about their identities. We welcome them all and look forward to learning about how you talk about yourself!
