Welcome to the online presence of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and ally (LGBT QIA) resources and organizations at Shippensburg University! We encourage members of the LGBT QIA community, as well as family, friends, and supporters, to explore our website. You will find information regarding "coming out," upcoming events, Safe Zones, and organizations at the university. We also have provided links to connect you with community resources and LGBTQIA news.

Shippensburg University's student newspaper, The Slate, wrote an article covering the recent student training. Read the article by going to The Slate Online!
