These panels are made up of LGBTQ Peer Educators and can be scheduled at anytime during the semester and catered specifically to the needs of your class, student organization, or group.

AU Connects is a new inclusion initiative that provides trained facilitators who can help guide challenging conversations around race and ethnicity. The goals of this program are to create greater understanding of ourselves and others; decrease fear of difference; and build a more inclusive campus climate.
