Through the Equity and Diversity Center, LGBTQ Programs serves members of of the NDSU community who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning (LGBTQ).
The mission of LGBTQ Programs at North Dakota State University is to strengthen and sustain an inclusive campus community for LGBTQ students, faculty, and staff by providing programming that reduces homophobia and gender identity oppression. We collaborate with campus departments, student organizations, university administration, and community groups to advocate for the needs and concerns of LGBTQ students. The LGBTQ Resource Center, located in the Equity and Diversity Center, provides a welcoming and affirming location on campus with an extensive print and media library and a gender neutral restroom.
