On Campus

 

LGBTQ Student Association (LGBTQSA) – one of DSUs Student Clubs

The LGBT Student Association is a club where any student, regardless of their sexual orientation, can meet new people, have fun, and be themselves. Our club is also one of the most active on campus and we regularly participate and host campus events throughout the year. Some of the past years events include: Don’t Sweat It, The Pajama Jam, Transgender Remembrance Day, National Coming Out Day, and Valentines D. These club events have not only been a blast to be apart of, but have helped make Dixie State University a more open and accepting place for its students.

Multicultural & Inclusion Center – The Multicultural and Inclusion Center (MIC) is a student support service established to increase diversity at Dixie State University via the recruitment and retention of students from diverse backgrounds and the enrichment of campus life through cultural and awareness activities. The MIC accomplishes this goal through scholarship opportunities, community outreach, academic advisement, and diversity club participation. The MIC operates under the principle that every person’s unique life experiences enrich campus life and adds a profound element to a true education.

 

DSU recently started a Diversity and Inclusion Committee comprised of faculty, staff, and campus security. We look for input from students so that we may address LGBTQ+ concerns. Contact the LGBTQ+ Resource Center to have your ideas shared at the next monthly meeting.
