Grad and Professional Student Socials
QGAPS is a collaborative program sponsored by the LGBTQ Center and The Graduate School Office of Diversity and Student Success. If you have any questions or accessibility needs, please contact our Graduate and Professional Student Program Coordinator.
Welcome Back Dinner
Come and celebrate the start of the new school year with other LGBTQIA+ graduate and professional students! You can connect with new friends, catch up with folks you met last year, and hear about all of the great events we have planned for you this year. All are welcome, but please register as space is limited! Dinner will be provided.
We host a bimonthly QGAPS Social for all LGBTQIA+ graduate and professional Students, and a monthly QGAPS + QTPOC Social for Black, Indigenous, and grad/pro students of color who identify as LGBTIQA+.
Both events serve as a chance for folks to connect, come together, and build community. Friends and family are welcome to join! Feel free to come for as long or as little as you are able. There is no pressure to purchase anything if you can’t or don’t want to.
Solstice Supper is a space for LGBTQIA+ identified graduate and professional students to celebrate the holidays together, since we recognize some students may not have an affirming family to celebrate with. It's also a great space to just take a break and spend time with other LGBTQIA+ folks as we go into finals!
