About the Institute

At the Midwest Institute for Sexuality and Gender Diversity, we re-envision a culture of higher education where the needs and experiences of systematically disadvantaged students are centered and the diverse experiences across the spectrums of sexuality and gender are celebrated.

Our programs

The Institute works with talented and committed student leaders from across the region to host the Midwest Bisexual Lesbian Gay Transgender Asexual College Conference (MBLGTACC), the largest conference hosted by and for LGBTQIA+ college students. Through this and other programs, we advance knowledge of sexuality and gender and we empower students to inspire sustainable change. We lead our higher education colleagues in relevant and inclusive practices.
