LGBTQA Outreach

American University prides itself in being an affirming place for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and asexual community and its allies. Throughout your time here at AU, you will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of programs/events/services geared towards the LGBTQA community and those interested in LGBTQA issues.

The Center for Diversity and Inclusion offers many ways for students to get involved with LGBTQA programs/events/services on campus and off campus:

  • Apply to be a LGBTQ Peer Educator, where you will sit on panels for RSB, lead conversations and become a peer advisor in Queer Talk, and help out in other LGBTQ initiatives through the Center.
  • Join CDI's newsletter, follow us on twitter, like CDI on Facebook, or join the AU CDI LGBTQ Community FB Group to stay up to date with everything going on at CDI.
  • Request an LGBTQ Peer Advisor to get questions answered about LGBTQA life on campus and in DC. Available for current students and prospective students!
  • Apply for the Schlegel Student Travel Grant for Creating Change!
