Speakers Bureau

The LGBTQ Center’s Speakers Bureau consists of LGBTQ+ students, faculty, and staff who volunteer their time to educate the University community about LGBTQ+ issues. The Speakers Bureau presents in an open Q&A panel format that allows for a great deal of interaction between the audience and the members of the panel.

We are happy to present in classrooms, residence halls, Greek organizations, diversity workshops or retreats – just about anywhere! Interested in having the LGBTQ Center Speakers Bureau present to your organization, or in becoming a panelist? Contact the Operations Intern, Blair (
