About Us

Serve as a link connecting collaborators with University of Arkansas students, alumni, and staff who self-identify as members of the LGBTQ+ community, engage the university and support the mission of the Office for Diversity and Inclusion. Provide professional development, support, mentoring, outreach and community support for alumni and students through events and to support University of Arkansas student groups and the student body at large.
