Founded in 2016, the University of Central Oklahoma’s LGBTQIA+ Faculty and Staff Association was formed to celebrate and support the lives of our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, Asexual + Faculty and Staff community, as well as Allies and students. The Association meets monthly and offers members a chance to get acquainted and learn from one another, as well as discuss current issues and upcoming events within both the UCO and Metro communities.
In addition to our monthly meetings, we offer members the chance to get involved in any of our seven subcommittees: Alumni Engagement Committee, Membership and Nomination Committee, Scholarship Committee, Social and Cultural Events Committee, Student Engagement and Retention (Mentorship) Committee, Web and Social Media Presence Committee, and Advocacy Committee. These subcommittees are designed to advocate, educate, and spread awareness on the LGBTQIA+ community.
