Welcome to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Committee For Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Concerns

University of Nebraska-Lincoln Committee For Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Concerns

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:

The Committee on GLBT Concerns would like to express our continued commitment to equality, safety, and respect for all people.  We encourage anyone who needs support or feels threatened to utilize resources on campus and in the community. You can find some resources on the LGBTQA+ Resource Center web pages. There are links and information about how to get involved and to find resources below.


Early Sunday morning on June 12th, 2016, a lone gunman targeted the LGBT community at The Pulse in Orlando FL, killing 49 people and injuring many more.  This tragedy created a national conversation on the reality of the broad spectrum of bias, marginalization, harassment, discrimination and violence impacting our community. It has also highlighted the amount of caring and support our community has and continues to receive. We thank all of those who gathered in person and in spirit to acknowledge the impact of this event and to provide support for inclusion, acceptance, equality and safety for our community and our world.
We encourage everyone to consider the ways they can be involved and take action to help create a safe, welcoming, peaceful and more socially just community at UNL and beyond. 

 We express our support for and commitment to social justice and empowerment for all underserved and underrepresented, or marginalized individuals and groups. Multiple and intersecting identities are important to recognize, and it should be noted that the mass shooting took place on Latinx night at The Pulse.
What impacts one of us, impacts us all.

What We Do

  • Collaborate with UNL administration, academic departments, and Student Affairs to establish policies, programs and services that meet the needs of GLBT members of the UNL community.
  • Advocate for equitable University policies that have included employee + 1 (domestic partner benefits) and the integration of GLBT issues into the curriculum, use of preferred pronouns and names; and use of optional identity demographic questions
  • Serve as a source of support, networking and resources for LGBTQA and Ally faculty, staff and students and the LGBTQA+ Resource Center.
  • Meet with the Chancellor annually.
