Midwest Institute for Sexuality and Gender Diversity Logo


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.

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.

While you’re here, learn more about the history of the Institute, or the history of MBLGTACC. Discover how you can support our mission. Check out resources you can use on your campus. Or, let us know how we can better support you. We vow to be accountable to the community we serve.

With pride,

Justin Drwencke
Executive Director
