Dear Students:

As part of our campus community, know that Marquette has a strong commitment to inclusivity and diversity in its many forms. We are aware that students who identify as LGBTQ+ or allies have unique experiences and face unique challenges. The Division of Student Affairs wants you to know that you are a valued member of the campus community.

Please take a moment to review Marquette’s Statement on Human Dignity and Diversity as well as our LGBTQ+ Resource Center. You will see that we strive to aid in the holistic development of all students and aim to enrich your out-of-classroom experience.

Marquette is committed to supporting students who identify as LGBTQ+ and allies as well as educating the campus community about LGBTQ+ issues/concerns. On this page you'll find a list of links that provide information on activities at Marquette and educational sites that provide support and information about the LGBTQ+ community. These are a few of the many options you have here at Marquette. Watch for other opportunities for support and involvement as they arise.

The Division of Student Affairs also sponsors the Diversity Advocates, a network of faculty, administrators and staff who are committed to supporting diverse students. Look for the Diversity Advocates placard, as seen on the Diversity Advocates website, to guide you to a university professional who is willing to listen and support you.


Dr. Xavier Cole
Vice President for Student Affairs
