LGBTQIA+ Student Organizations and Groups

The University of Utah has several LGBTQIA+ student organizations which serve as important hubs for community, activism, and leadership on our campus. Check out these many opprotunites to get involved!

The Diversity Graduate School Application Advisory (DGSAA) is aimed at helping all students apply to graduate school, with a focus on supporting underrepresented students’ needs. Applying to graduate school is complex, and many students might not have the insider information necessary to navigate this process successfully. This advisory was created to help female, minority, LGBTQ, non-traditional students, and all students with the full application process. We offer one on one meetings to discuss; taking the GRE, essays, choosing programs to apply for, funding, important elements to add to the CV, interviewing, advisors, publications, presentations, and more broadly how to stay sane but get into a program that you will love!

Inclusive Earth encourages unity and inclusivity in the College of Mines and Earth Sciences (CMES) community, including faculty, staff, and students. We will facilitate constructive and respectful dialogue and open-minded debate about safety, bias, and diversity, with respect to science, community, and professional development.

Pride Law Caucus (PLC) in SJ Quinney College of Law was created to allow law students who are interested in LGBT legal issues to have a common forum to expand their knowledge and share their areas of interest in LGBT issues.

PLC would also like to promote participation in community service projects, create scholarships, develop and maintain community partnerships, and educate other students about the area of LGBT legal issues and rights.
