Queer Connections mentoring program is designed to match LGBTQIA+ undergraduate students with mentors from a pool of faculty and staff who also identify in the LGBTQIA+ community and are out about their identities. Queer Connections is open to all members of the university community. Mentors and mentees are matched, usually by late October, and then meet regularly over a six-month period. During this time, they build connections, explore resources, and work toward collaboratively-constructed goals.
Queer Connections Mentee and Mentor interest forms will be available for the 2022-23 academic year soon. Stay tuned!
