LGBTQIA Students You are Welcome Here

A Place to Call Home

The LGBTQIA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, asexual/aromantic) community at Illinois Wesleyan includes students, staff, faculty, and alumni. We are represented everywhere at IWU – from the classrooms and residence halls to different majors, student organizations, and office spaces. We are Titan athletes, performers, student leaders, fraternity and sorority members, faculty, and staff. Diversity and social justice are literally in our mission statement and we don't take it for granted. Come as you are - you are welcome here.
