Straight Talks Peer Education Program

Student Staff and Graduate Assistantship

Advisory Boards

The Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity is committed to improving programming, expanding outreach, and involving all members of the LGBTQ+ community in the future development of the center and our work on campus. 

LGBTQ+ Student Organizations

There are numerous LGBTQ+ student-run organizations at Penn State. 

To find out more information about LGBTQ+ student organizations at campuses across the commonwealth, visit the Commonwealth and World Campuses LGBTQ+ Resources page or the Join a Student Organization page and select the desired campus.

Out & Engaged Immersion Experience

The Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity offers students an opportunity to learn more about various aspects of the LGBTQA community through an immersion experience.

 

Trips expose students to the history of the LGBTQA+ community, as well as encourage personal growth, promote civic engagement, and enrich the lives of participants.

Take A Class

You can get involved academically through courses offered through Biobehavioral Health or the Sexuality and Gender Studies minor.
