The LGBTQ+ Center has given me so many opportunities to learn and grow, as part of the community and as a student. I feel more prepared for the world ahead because of it.
The LGBTQ+ Center has been instrumental in my personal growth and my identity development. I can say with full certainty that they helped shape who I am today.
It’s through the LGBTQ+ center that I have had as many opportunities as I have had. I’m not really sure who I would be without them!
It’s my family away from my uncomfortable home.
I feel safe and loved at the LGBTQ+ Center. Because of this, I am able to push my boundaries and grow.
I love all the resources available at the Center. There’s so much to learn and do.
The LGBTQ+ Center envisions a safe and inclusive campus community where all IU Indianapolis individuals feel a sense of belonging, are able to celebrate all identities, and are equipped with unhindered resources to reach aspects of holistic wellness.
The LGBTQ+ Center fosters an inclusive campus community by focusing on gender, sexual, and romantic identities at the intersections of class, race, ethnicity, nationality, ability, age, and other salient social identities. The LGBTQ+ Center promotes a sense of belonging and connection to IU Indianapolis and the broader queer community through programming and initiatives that educate, advocate, empower, and engage students and the IU Indianapolis campus.
The LGBTQ+ Center at IUI was born out of multiple years of strategic planning by the administration, faculty, staff, and students. It is our pleasure to release an official history of the planning and creation of the IUI LGBTQ+ Center. Written from the perspective of three people who were involved in the process from the beginning, we hope this history (ours and yours) brings clarity and provides a more cohesive understanding of our journey.
