Our LGBT Center cultivates safe and civil environments that affirm diverse forms of sexuality, gender identity & expression, and queerness.  Through training, strategic communications, social gatherings, and presentations, we strive to contribute to OHIO’s pathway to national leadership in inclusive excellence.  By practicing radical inclusion we serve and celebrate people of all genders, orientations, and expressions of identity.

Micah McCarey named new LGBT Center director

"It’s incredibly important to me that the entirety of the LGBTQ+ spectrum and broader community feels welcome at our LGBT Center,” said McCarey. “I’m passionate about supporting and empowering our students and visitors who find a safe space in our Center. It’s our job to share the network of support LGBTQ+ individuals have access to across the University and in the Athens community.”

Since his time as interim director of the LGBT Center, McCarey has fostered a supportive environment that has attracted constituents who had not historically utilized the Center.

Dr. Secuban said McCarey has had a great impact on the LGBT Center as interim director. Under McCarey’s leadership, the Center’s Fall 2019 achievements included taking first place for most spirited homecoming parade float, attending CampusPride LGBT College Fairs to recruit prospective students from across the nation, and instructing a University College course for first year and transfer students seeking LGBTQ+ connection and information.
