Greetings LGBTQ+ Canes and Allies,

Welcome to the University of Miami's LGBTQ Student Center, where 'U' belong! The center is a nexus for the LGBTQ+ community. Regardless of where you are on your journey, we are here for you! Our programs and offerings include peer mentorship, a space to study and socialize, and a calendar full of events. We are the LGBTQ+ hub on campus, bringing together student organizations and leaders through our Program Advisory Board (Rainbow Roundtable). As one of the youngest centers in the country, we are committed to being on the cutting edge of identity-based work. We believe our students are dynamic, resilient and bring a variety of multiple and intersecting identities. Join us on the second floor of the Whitten University Center to study, relax with your friends, and learn more about University of Miami's LGBTQ+ life. We are committed to enhancing the university's commitment to inclusion and belonging. As a department, we work together to make the UM community and the world a better place! We encourage you to explore this website for information about resources available to the University of Miami's LGBTQ+ community and allies.

In community,

Dr. Van Bailey
