Programs

LGBTQ+ Studies

LGBT Studies focus on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, their history and culture, considering sexualities and genders as identities, social statuses, categories of knowledge, and as lenses that help us to frame how we understand our world.

Scholarships

In 2002, Hofstra University established an unprecedented scholarship program for students engaged in service to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBTQ+) community.

Inclusive Q-mmunity

Inclusive Q-mmunity Training is a 4 hour training designed to introduce LGBTQ+ terminology, issues, resources and information. Participants will learn how to practice effective allyship that is inclusion of all identities and their intersections. All participants may receive a button and/or sticker after completing the training and agreeing to be an advocate for LGBTQ+ individuals. This training is available to the entire Hofstra community.

Gender Identity Alliance (GIA)

GIA holds weekly meetings to advocate for members of the Transgender, Gender non-conforming, non-binary and gender fluid communities, as well as to educate those with little to no knowledge on various gender identities and expressions in the hopes of making Hofstra a more comfortable community for all.
