LGBTQ+ Concerns Committee
Welcome to the online presence of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer+ (LGBTQ+) resources and organizations at Shippensburg University! We encourage members of the LGBTQ+ 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 LGBTQ+ news.
LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) as an initialism is an attempt at recognizing myriad of complex and intersecting identities within this population. Yet, it is not an entirely-inclusive term. For example, individuals with a spectrum of additional identities often go unnamed and may feel further marginalized with the singular, overarching usage of LGBTQ+. If you would like more information about other terminology related to the LGBTQ+ community, please check our
