Resources For The LGBTQIA Community

LGBTQIA Victim Survivors

LGBTQIA individuals experience rates of sexual violence higher than people who identify as heterosexual.  Reporting sexual violence as a LGBTQIA individual can bring additional difficulties as reporting may raise concerns regarding disclosure during the reporting process.  These are very real concerns but we strongly encourage you to seek the support and resources available to you on campus and in the community.

Resources specific to LGBTQIA individuals are listed within this brochure. 

Along with what is mentioned within the LGBTQIA+ resource guide, Millersville University has two commissions in which are dedicated to fostering a diverse and inclusive community.

  1. Millersville University has a LGBTQIA Committee that is a standing committee of the President's Commission on Cultural Diversity & Inclusion. Its mission is "to foster a University climate that promotes equity and inclusion for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender/transsexual, questioning/queer, intersex, and allies/androgynous/asexual (LGBTQIA) community."  Its members include students, faculty, and administrators.
  2. Millersville University President's Commission on Gender and Sexual Diversity (PCGSD) is to foster a university climate that promotes equity, inclusion, and affirmation for persons who are sexually and gender diverse (e.g.) are or are perceived to be lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender/transsexual, questioning/queer, intersex, allies/androgynous/asexual (LGBTQIA), etc.).  The Commission actively supports policies, practices, and programs that pursue this goal for students, staff, faculty, administrators and the general public with respect to sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.
