The LGBTQ+ Project actively works to make Louisiana State University a safer space for all students, faculty, and staff regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. The Project emphasizes providing educational opportunities, ongoing professional development, and programming for students, staff, faculty, and administration with attention to the unique challenges that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning (LGBTQ+) individuals and their allies often encounter. The Project also works with students, staff, faculty, administration, student organizations, and university departments to represent LGBTQ+ concerns and provide advocacy and resources.
