Faculty and Staff Gender-Sexuality Alliance

The mission of UWSP’s Faculty and Staff Gender-Sexuality Alliance is to be a visible presence on campus and bring together gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, an​d questioning individuals and their allies across all areas of the university for the purpose of reducing fear, prejudice, and discrimination. We educate members of the campus community on LGBTQ+ issues and promote a safe and open environment at UWSP in order to welcome, encourage, discuss, and support diversity.

We would like to invite you to join our group and welcome your suggestions for other activities and initiatives we might undertake.
