LGBTQ Student Center

A national organization has recognized Kent State University with a perfect overall score for the university’s efforts to create a more inclusive campus and welcoming environment for all.

It is with heavy and reverent hearts that we share news that Emeritus English Professor Dr. Dolores Noll, trailblazer and pioneer for LGBTQ+ rights and people, passed away at the age of 88 on January 8th. Dolores’s impact is seen today at Kent State University.

An inclusive campus acknowledges and respects diversity, and offers a welcoming environment for all community members regardless of their differences.

Since 2010, The Kent State University Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) Student Center serves as a safe space where individuals can explore their identities and foster connections with other members of the LGBTQ community and their allies. Additionally, the Center connects students to valuable University and community resources and provides students with meaningful involvement and leadership opportunities.

Kent State takes part in the Equality March, kicking off Akron Pride 2017.

As Golden Flashes, we strive to be accessible safe-space allies for LGBTQ students. It doesn't matter who you are, where you're from or what sport you belong to here at Kent State. If you can play, you can play!
