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 filled for the 23-24 academic year. Check back in the summer of 2024!
