What are the group dialogue programs?
Our support groups are facilitated by the LGBTQIA+ Identity Support Specialist, a professionally trained staff member. Each group is intended to provide a supportive, brave, and affirming space for students to explore their identity and experiences through facilitated narrative sharing with the goal of finding mutual support. All individuals who are LGBTQIA+ or questioning are welcome. These groups are not affiliated with any student organizations and are designed to protect the privacy of all participants.

How do I join the support groups?
Please email Paola Lopez, firstname.lastname@example.org, to express your interest in the group. You will then be provided with the link to join. We ask that you do not share the link with others and encourage them to email to request link in order to ensure privacy and group size limitations.
