LGBTQIA Councils 
Office of Diversity and Community Relations

The councils on PCOM's campuses provide a safe, supportive network for faculty, staff and students to share successful best practices, research and personal stories that encourage open and inclusive campus climates for LGBTQIA individuals.


To foster understanding of the LGBTQIA community and their health needs and to integrate them into the campus culture. This will be achieved by providing information on professional development opportunities, successful practices and a support network for professionals of all identities as they advocate for all students, whether LGBTQIA-identified or not.
