Love is Love 2014 - CandidVolunteering

The LGBTQ Center is staffed Monday through Friday by student volunteers. Volunteers work in teams of two. Contact the Operations Intern, Tuck (, to sign up!

Speakers Bureau

The LGBTQ Center’s Speakers Bureau consists of LGBTQ students, faculty, and staff who volunteer their time to educate the University community about LGBTQ issues. The Speakers Bureau presents in an open Q&A panel format that allows for a great deal of interaction between the audience and the members of the panel.

We are happy to present in classrooms, residence halls, Greek organizations, diversity workshops or retreats – just about anywhere! Interested in having the LGBTQ Center Speakers Bureau present to your organization, or in becoming a panelist? Contact the Speakers Bureau Intern, Arthur (
