Center for Diversity & Inclusion

LGBTQA Outreach

American University prides itself in being an affirming place for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and asexual community and its allies. Throughout your time here at AU, you will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of programs/events/services geared towards the LGBTQA community and those interested in LGBTQA issues.

Getting Involved & Finding Community

The Center for Diversity & Inclusion offers many ways for students to get involved with LGBTQA programs/events/services on campus & off campus:
