LGBTQA Living-Learning Community | Kent State University

LGBTQA Living-Learning Community

The LGBTQA Living-Learning Community is located in Korb Hall. This community is open to all students interested in learning about sexual orientation and gender identity, with a focus on social justice for LGBTQA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and asexual) persons. All students in the Living-Learning Community take one course each semester focused on LGBTQA experiences with the Living-Learning Community Coordinator.

BENEFITS OF LIVING IN THE LGBTQA LIVING-LEARNING COMMUNITY

The LGBTQA Living-Learning community provides select undergraduate students with an immersive environment structured around an intellectual exchange that extends beyond the classroom. Community offerings include classes in LGBT Studies, exclusive lectures by faculty involved in the Study of Gender and Sexuality, academic advising, programming and support from the LGBTQ Student Center, and opportunities to participate in career exploration, faculty-led research, leadership development, study groups, and social and cultural activities.
