LGBTQ Services Office
The LGBTQ Services Office supports Oregon State University in meeting the specific academic, social, and cultural needs of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, and Allied (LGBTQQIA) students, prospective and current. Retention of LGBTQQIA students is the primary goal of the LGBT Services Office. Promoting campus based groups who educate and raise awareness about sexual and affectional orientation and identities is an essential component of the program. Equally important is the goal of fostering relationships within Corvallis and across surrounding communities to help build relationships through which LGBTQQIA students can thrive as they pursue future educational, career, and life goals.

Pride Center
The OSU Pride Center provides programs and support services for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning and intersexed members of the OSU community and their allies. The Pride Center affirms the identities and empowers the lives of LGBTQQI people by providing education, outreach, program support, consultation, community development, visibility and advocacy. The Pride Center is a safe space for all members of our community to explore aspects of sexual orientation and gender identity in an open and non-judgemental atmosphere.

OSU Rainbow Continuum
The Rainbow Continuum is a student-fee funded organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, questioning, and intersex (LGBTQQI) students, and our allies at Oregon State University. As a social and educational group the Rainbow Continuum strives to create a welcoming and safe space for diverse communities to interact with and relate to one another; educate OSU about the experiences of the LGBTQQIA community; and refer students to the network of support structures and resources available to the LGBTQQIA community at OSU.

LGBTQ History

The Women's Center was an integral part to the formation of the first OSU student LGBT group in 1976. It then acted as the center of LGBTQ students until 2004, when the OSU Pride Center opened on campus.

Take a look at the Women's Center's involvement with the LGBTQ movement on the OSU campus.
