All Are Welcome
The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Center advances the diversity mission of Ohio University by creating a university environment and community inclusive and supportive of sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, and queerness. We focus on the unique academic, cultural, and social needs of LGBT students, faculty, staff, alumni, and members of the wider community. As an academic support unit, we strive to enhance students’ learning and engagement as well as increase the retention of LGBT students. Our broader influence emerges from providing resources, educational opportunities, social gatherings, and LGBTQ justice initiatives to ALL students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members at Ohio University and beyond.
SafeZone and Other Presentations
More about SafeZone and Other Presentations
SafeZone is a training program open to ALL students, staff, faculty, and community members. The goal of this program is to raise awareness about the dynamics of gender and sexual orientation while exploring different ways to embody inclusive allyship for people of all orientations, genders, sexualities, identities, and levels of being out. In addition to our basic SafeZone, the center offers a variety of trainings and interactive lectures engaging the spectrum of sexual and gender diversities as well "customizing" presentations to meet the needs of a group, class, and/or organization. Center staff are happy to facilitate a variety of trainings and/or guest lectures on and off campus.
Learn more about Pronouns
We are mindful that navigating the world of gender-inclusive and gender-neutral language can be confusing, especially around pronouns. The OHIO Registrar’s Office created a FAQ guide explaining the university’s name and pronoun policy for students as well as other details regarding this effort.
Our newsletter is one of the ways to keep up with rainbow awesome happenings on and off campus. We promote events the center is directly involved with and events that we think folks might be interested in.
