Community Support & Resources

Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity & Affirmative Action

The Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity & Affirmative Action (IDEAA) promotes a deep understanding and appreciation among the diverse members of the University community to result in justice and equality in educational, employment and contracting opportunities, as well as to lead efforts to create an inclusive academic and work environment.

Campus Ministry

Consistent with our commitment to the dignity and worth of each and every individual, the Office of Campus Ministry welcomes and celebrates the experiences and gifts of our LGBTQ+ students, staff, and faculty. We are proud to offer affirming services, retreats, and programs across our diverse chaplaincies.

Campus Ministry also holds a weekly LGBTQ Catholic prayer group. For more information please contact Fr. Greg Schenden.

Cawley Career Education Center

The first step in any career search is to reflect on what is most important to you. As someone in the LGBTQ community, this means first understanding where you are in your own identity development. The Cawley Career Education Center is a space where you can ask questions about all aspects of personal career development in a supportive and nonjudgmental environment. Knowing how often personal identity connects to career decisions, you can find FAQs related to identity and career decisions and schedule a meeting with someone from the career center here.

Office of the Student Ombuds

The Office of the Student Ombuds (OSO) is an independent, impartial, informal, voluntary, and confidential resource for students. We provide a safe space to voice concerns and navigate academic and interpersonal challenges. The OSO welcomes every sex, gender, race, creed, age, nationality, disability, and other human experiences, ensuring all students feel valued.

We listen, support, explore options, and empower students to make their own choices. Our services help students gain clarity, develop communication skills, and find constructive solutions, enhancing their overall university experience and well-being.
