The Queer Coalition at Illinois State University is a faculty, staff, and graduate student affinity group for LGBTQ2IA+ Central Illinoisans. Our purpose is to:
Promote the diverse cultures of the LGBTQ2IA+ community at ISU and in the local area
Represent the interests, needs, and concerns of LGBTQ2IA+ faculty, staff, and students
Encourage communication, engagement, and support among the LGBTQ2IA+ community
Develop cooperative relationships in the ISU and local communities
Assist ISU with the recruitment and retention of LGBTQ2IA+ faculty, staff, and students
Support LGBTQ2IA+ students at ISU by offering scholarships when funding is available
Foreground the fact that all forms of oppression are interconnected and by so doing support and work toward racial justice.
Membership is open to all faculty, staff, graduate students, retirees, and local community members. If you are an undergraduate student, please feel free to get in touch with us or check out some of ISU’s LGBTQ2IA+ registered student organizations, such as Pride, Queer Ed Birds, Outlifting, and Drag Royalty.
