The Institute exists to empower students of diverse sexualities and genders to inspire sustainable change; lead higher education colleagues in relevant and inclusive practices; and advance knowledge of sexuality and gender through advocacy and expansive programming. One of the important ways we fulfill that promise is by providing resources, expertise, and spaces for intentional dialogue, intersectional advocacy, and community. We’ve curated important resources for college students and higher ed professionals and placed them all in one place, here, just for you.

As a majority white queer organization we have a responsibility to hold ourselves and our community accountable.
