The LGBTQ+ Center provides programming and academic resources for WVU students, faculty, staff, and community members. Situated in Academic Affairs and reporting to the Office of the Provost, we help enact the academic mission of the modern land grant university. We support the university’s educational social justice efforts through trainings, classes, and advocacy on WVU campuses and across the state. Attention to LGBTQ-related inequities also requires addressing all aspects of inequality, including homophobia, transphobia, racism, misogyny, xenophobia, ableism, and more.
The LGBTQ+ Center also provides a warm, comfortable atmosphere for organizing, socializing, teaching, and learning. We welcome all students, staff, faculty, and community members to come up and join us.
The LGBTQ Center offers inclusive programming and outreach initiatives for WVU students, faculty, staff, and broader community members. We collaborate with and support the university’s larger social justice efforts by providing inclusive, academic, and curricular development training on all WVU campuses, by advocating for members of our community, and by building coalitions. We also work throughout the state to improve understanding of LGBTQIA+ issues.
Students are encouraged to use the LGBTQ+ Center lounge for studying, meeting friends, working on class projects, watching documentaries, and more. We also offer additional meeting spaces and snacks.
