Leadership

The Institute is a 501(c)(3) organization, incorporated in the state of Michigan and serving the entire Midwest, including Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. We are governed by a board of directors, and our programs, resources, and operations are organized by the leadership team.

Leadership TEAM

The leadership team manages the organization on a day-to-day basis. Our humans include experienced advocates and graduate students in the higher education, financial services, marketing/communications, and information technologies fields. We’ve helped organize MBLGTACC conferences at our own campuses and dedicated ourselves to the causes of building queer success in the Midwest.
