LGBT

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.
 



“As interim director for Ohio University’s LGBT Center, my top priority is to provide continuity of services to our students, faculty and staff who rely on the center for support until a new director is selected following the national search. It is important to me that all members of the LGBTQ+ community and allies feel welcome, safe and valued at the Center. It is my hope that, in addition to continuing current programming, I will be able to begin the implementation of new, innovative programs that our community has been requesting for some time.

As an ally of the LGBTQ+ community, I hope to help provide support for the unique academic, cultural, and social needs of LGBT students, faculty, staff, alumni, and members of the wider community. Additionally, as an academic support unit, the Center staff strives to enhance students’ learning and engagement and to increase the recruitment and 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.

Hello, and welcome to the LGBT Center at Ohio University.”

Interim LGBT Center Director

  • 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.

  • Prounouns Matter


    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.
