Queer Coalition

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.
