The mission of the LGBTQ+ Center on campus is to enrich the experiences, celebrate victories, and affirm the existence of Penn’s LGBTQ+ undergraduates, professional & graduate students. Staff, faculty, and alumni using the lenses of social justice and intersectionality.
Through education, support, and advocacy, the Center cultivates a campus climate where all students, regardless of their gender or sexuality, can live authentically.
The LGBTQ+ Center is working on some exciting events for the faculty, staff, and students of the University.
The LGBTQ+ Center is working to re-start the employee resource group, LGBTQ+ Employees at Penn (LEAP)!
