LGBTQ Plus Support

Mission Statement

One of Sinclair's three strategic priorities is EQUITY. Sinclair's vision statement regarding equity reads as follows: "The student body, faculty, and staff will reflect the holistic diversity of the region, and success achievement gaps between groups will be eliminated."

Guided by our commitment to equity, the Offices of Student Affairs seek to provide a campus environment where all students, including those who identify as LGBTQ+, feel welcomed, respected, safe, and valued as full members of the campus community. We support LGBTQ+ students by providing  resources and services, making education and training available to all members of the campus community, and developing students who are committed to leading positive social change. Through these efforts we embody one of the college's strategic policies, to maintain the social justice and inclusion traditions of the college through open access to programs and services.
