The Office for Gender & Sexual Diversity


Using a Social Justice Framework the mission of OGSD aims to cultivate support, connection, and growth for LGBTQ+ students, faculty, staff, and alumni through: 

  • Fostering Community (Tulane and broader communities):  OGSD works to create a community that is sustained by honoring our diverse values, contributions, and experiences while centering those who hold multiple marginalized identities in the LGBTQ+ community. 
  •  Accountability: OGSD believes part of personal growth and creating deep connections requires accountability to yourself, your peers, and your community especially in how you reflect on and navigate your privileged identities. 
  •  Leadership (Courageous) Development: OGSD provides resources and tools for students, faculty, and staff to become courageous and authentic leaders within and beyond OGSD and Tulane University. 
  •  Advocacy:  OGSD advocates for Queer and Trans liberation at Tulane University through educational workshops, LGBTQ+ programs, and improving university policy and processes for LGBTQ+ students, faculty, and staff.

We envision a Tulane campus community that is accountable and committed to unlearning and eliminating heterosexism and cissexism through an intersectional, racial justice, and decolonization approach. A campus community where the waves of inclusion are affirming of all gender and sexual identities.
