The mission of the Office for Gender and Sexual Diversity (OGSD) is to strengthen and enhance diversity at Tulane University. OGSD works with all members of Tulane University to ensure a climate of respect, understanding, and appreciation for gender and sexual diversity.
OGSD assists academic and administrative departments in implementing policies, programs, and activities to increase the number of underrepresented students that enroll in and graduate from Tulane University; advises and supports LGBTIQ-identified students; strengthens the cultures and organizations that they create; serves as a hub for social, cultural, academic, and intellectual resources; encourages critical thinking about gender and sexuality; addresses issues of bias, harassment, and discrimination; fosters within the University community a respect for and an appreciation of the history, traditions and cultures of LGBTIQ-identified students; and, works to ensure an open and affirming learning environment, free of homophobia, heterosexism, transphobia, sexism, and other forms of gender- and sex-based bias and discrimination.
Understanding that students have multiple identities, OGSD works closely with the Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) to provide educational, social, and cultural opportunities that address the ways in which gender and sexuality intersect with race, ethnicity, class, nationality, dis/ability, and religious identifications.
OGSD offers lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender, intersex, queer, questioning, and allied students with the following programs and services to facilitate their adjustment to the University and ability to thrive thereafter:
Have you witnessed harassment or a bias incident? Have you seen homophobic graffiti or heard homophobic language used on campus? Help our office track incidents by reporting them. We can also help you file a report, if you choose.
