Intimate partner and sexual violence is not restricted to the heterosexual community. Intimate partner and sexual violence can occur in any community. If you are a member of the LGBTQ community and believe you have been a victim of intimate partner violence and/or sexual assault, you are not alone.

  • Trans Action Initiative:
We are an affinity group that works to create a safe space for all students to explore gender. Some of our goals include strengthening community among gender variant students and allies; creating more gender-neutral spaces on campus (specifically housing and bathrooms); educating students, faculty, and administrators about transgender issues; and actively lobbying for trans-friendly policies on campus and in a larger political sphere. We meet Tuesdays at 6:00 p.m. in the Red Room in the Campus Center. Everyone is welcome. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, or just stuff you want to talk about.
