About the Consortium

The combined vision and mission of the Consortium is to achieve higher education environments in which lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students, faculty, staff, administrators, and alumni have equity in every respect. Our goals are to support colleagues and develop curriculum to professionally enhance this work; to seek climate improvement on campuses; and to advocate for policy change, program development, and establishment of LGBT Office/Centers.

We represent nearly 600 members worldwide, across a wide range of college, university, and non-profit contexts. Our all-volunteer board is committed to anti-racism, social justice, education, and inclusion.
