Illinois State University Queer Coalition logo

The Queer Coalition at Illinois State University is a faculty, staff, and graduate student affinity group for LGBTQ2IA+ Central Illinoisans. Our purpose is to:

1. Promote the diverse cultures of the LGBTQ2IA+ community at ISU and in the local area;

2. Represent the interests, needs, and concerns of LGBTQ2IA+ faculty, staff, and students;

3. Encourage communication, engagement, and support among the LGBTQ2IA+ community; 

4. Develop cooperative relationships in the ISU and local communities; 

5. Assist ISU with the recruitment and retention of LGBTQ2IA+ faculty, staff, and students; 

6. Support LGBTQ2IA+ students at ISU by offering scholarships when funding is available; 

7. Foreground the fact that all forms of oppression are interconnected and by so doing support and work toward racial justice.

Get involved!
