About Us

Welcome to the Consortium of Higher Education Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Resource Professionals! Our organizational vision is: "We envision higher education environments where LGBTQ people, inclusive of all of our intersecting identities, are fully liberated. Our Mission is that we are a "a member-based organization working towards the liberation of LGBTQ people in higher education. We support individuals  who work on campuses to educate and support people of diverse  sexual orientations and gender identities, as well as advocate for more inclusive policies and practices through an intersectional and racial justice framework." To learn more about how we achieve our vision and mission, please visit the vision and mission section of our website.

We were officially born at the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force's Creating Change Conference in San Diego (November, 1997), but had already been working together on an informal basis for several years. In 2008, we changed our name from the National Consortium of Directors of LGBT Resources in Higher Education to better reflect our membership and mission. Click here to learn more of our history!

We hold our annual meeting at the NGLTF Creating Change Conference, when we also host an LGBT College Administrators Pre-Conference Institute. We also host gatherings at the annual ACPA and NASPA conferences, and support regional meetings for our members.

The Directors of the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS) have approved the Consortium as an associate member organization.

We encourage staff, faculty, and graduate students working with LGBT issues on a college or university campus to become a member of the Consortium. As a member, you join a community of over 300 people on our Listserv and gain access to members-only web resources and our Mentoring Program, Internship Program, etc.

We invite you to explore the resources on this web site. Please contact a member of the Executive Board with your comments or questions.
