• Sexualities and Gender Diversity Programs


    HU logo lgbtqia: rainbow circle with the Hamline H in the centerHamline University's campus-wide Sexualities and Gender Diversity Programs are focused on creating a dynamic campus community that affirms and supports sexual and gender diversity and promotes healthy and safe relationships. This work is part of the larger campus-wide equity and diversity initiatives working to develop a welcoming and inclusive environment for all – students, faculty, and staff. LGBTQIA people come from every walk of life, and our communities include people who are affected by every system of oppression, not just homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia.

    In order to create a supportive and welcoming environment programs have been developed for faculty, staff and students. These initiatives include campus wide trainings and other educational programming, specific leadership training opportunities for students, and training for faculty and staff to develop and create more welcoming classroom and community spaces on campus. We work to create opportunities to fosters mentoring relationships between faculty, staff, and students. Additional campus initiatives encourage faculty and staff to take leadership on LGBTQIA issues in their offices and academic departments; students to take leadership on these issues in their academic, work, and the student organizations they are members and leaders.

    A Note About Language

    Since we all use language differently, when we use:

    LGBTQIA, it is an acronym for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, queer, intersex, and asexual. The intent is to represent these identities and also related identities not explicitly included in the acronym.

    Trans*, refers to the broad community that encompasses the spectrum of gender identities that includes but is not limited to: transgender, transsexual, crossdresser, drag, genderqueer, two spirit (and other indigenous community identities), androgynous, a-gender, bigender, and people who are gender diverse and gender expressive. The asterisk is used as a visible signifier of the complexity and diversity of trans* communities.
