Vision and Mission Statement


We envision higher education environments where LGBTQ people, inclusive of all of our intersecting identities, are fully liberated.


The Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals is 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.


The Consortium does this through:

Education- We offer best and promising practices through a variety of professional development opportunities. Most notably via monthly webinars, day-long institutes, and the development of  documents aimed at addressing specific areas that affect LGBTQ communities.


Empowerment & Support - We cultivate networks of higher education professionals advocating for and supporting LGBTQ communities on their campuses, by working towards meaningful inter-generational engagement, providing pipeline support for queer and trans people of color (QTPOC), and connecting members in Consortium constituency groups.


Collaborative Engagement-  We foster collaborative relationships with higher education institutions and other organizations in our efforts to advocate for more just and inclusive colleges and universities.

** Acronyms are tricky and can be both regionally and culturally based. In an effort to more broadly name our communities we use LGBTQ, QTPOC, and diverse sexual orientations and gender identities in this document to give voice to multiple ways that they may be named.
