Who We Are
The purpose of UNL’s Committee on Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Concerns is to ensure a university environment that empowers LGBTQA+ people.
Statement for Inclusive Excellence:
In light of issues of bias and stigma experienced by people of color on campus, the CGLBTC would like to express our support for and commitment to social justice and empowerment for all underserved and underrepresented, or marginalized individuals and groups. Multiple and intersecting identifies are important to recognize, and inclusive excellence on campus is a worthy mission. We hope our campus will support the “Not Now, Not Here, Not Ever” campaign to eliminate bias and move toward the goal of inclusive excellence and equitable policies. We encourage you to support Student Involvement's LGBTQA+ Resource Center in it's campaign for inclusive excellence “Right Here, Right Now, Always”!
