In honor of Pride Month, we rounded up a few resources for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer + (LGBTQ+) students, staff, and faculty at Harris.

  • The Office of LGBTQ+ Student Life through the Center for Identity and Inclusion is the hub for all LGBTQ+ student life at The University of Chicago. The Office serves LGBTQ+ students, questioning students, and allies in the College and graduate and professional schools, in order to create an inclusive and safe community by providing educational opportunities, building community, and serving as a resource for all students in the university. Be sure to visit their website to learn about ways to get involved, LGBTQ+ resources, and Trans@UChicago resources for transgender, gender non-conforming and non-binary (TGNC) students.
  • OUTPolitik (OUT-pohl-eh-TEEK) is the Harris Student Organization for LGBTQ+-identified students and allies committed to fostering a community of future policy professionals interested in issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community. OUTPolitik strives to make the Harris School of Public Policy a welcoming and engaging center for LGBTQ+ students and the study of LGBTQ+ policy. Incoming students can join OutPolitik on Facebook and Instagram. Read the article: OUTPolitik and the Struggle for LGBTQ Equality
  • The LGBTQ+ University Resource Group is open to all members of the University of Chicago community including faculty, staff, post-doctoral researchers, residents, and students. The LGBT+ Resource Group is comprised of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender members of the Biological Sciences Division, the Pritzker School of Medicine, the University of Chicago Medicine community, and its allies. They are a group contributing to the support, education, advocacy, professional development, networking, and outreach for LGBT+ employees, students, patients, and their families. They are also an advisory group supporting the BSD, Pritzker, and UCM in creating a welcoming and inclusive environment. Join the LGBT+ Resource Group and access group resources

We hope you find these groups and resources helpful. Happy Pride!
