We strive to improve the campus climate for members of the EIU comunity by advocating on behalf of LGBTQA issues and partnering with others to promote an inclusive and respectful community.

I invite you to share your skills and interests with the advisory board so we can find the best way for you to get involved. Please join us in this important work to ensure EIU is a place where all are welcomed and affirmed.
