Undergraduate Student Organizations

Undergraduate Student Organizations

Undergraduate student organizations that focus on LGBTIQA+ communities, or with missions that align with the Center's goal of fostering a welcoming and inclusive environment for UNC-Chapel Hill community members of all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions. 

 

Carolina Advocating for Gender Equity (CAGE)

CAGE works to eliminate gender biases and to build a positive community to discuss and brainstorm solutions to gender-based issues. We are a student organization at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, based out of the Campus Y, that strives to create gender-affirming spaces throughout campus.

As a committee, we advocate for gender equity. We reject the gender binary as a social construct that often leads to harmful gender roles and gender-based violence and discrimination. We celebrate the spectrum of gender identity and gender expression. We make our community a welcoming, safe, and affirming place for all people to discuss and explore gender as an important part of self and identity. We discuss experiences, current events, and theory to challenge concepts of gender and its role on our campus and in our society.
 

Out in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (oSTEM)

oSTEM empowers LGBTQ people in STEM to succeed personally, academically, and professionally by cultivating environments and communities that nurture innovation, leadership, and advocacy.

 

Pride @Kenan Flagler Business School

Pride@KFBS serves as the Undergraduate Business Program’s LGBTQ+ organization. The organization seeks to increase LGBTQ+ visibility at Kenan-Flagler and to establish a sense of community for LGBTQ+ students and allies interested in business. Additionally, we connect students to LGBTQ-friendly employers and seeks to provide extensive professional development opportunities specific to the needs of LGBTQ+ students in business. Our organization welcomes allies to show support and partake in educational events, which will provide them the tools to become a better ally. 

 

Queer and Transgender People of Color (QTPOC)

UNC QTPOC is a club for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color to socialize and organize. Meets every Thursday at 5:30 pm in the Union in front of Alpine.

 

Sexuality and Gender Alliance (SAGA)

The Sexuality and Gender Alliance (SAGA) works to foster a strong LGBTQ+ community at UNC. SAGA is an events-based organization that hosts many programs and activities throughout the year. Examples include Queer Prom, Trivia Night, monthly Movie Nights, and much more! In addition, we hold collaborations with other student groups on campus to celebrate the intersectional nature of LGBTQ+ life. Above all else, SAGA strives to promote the welfare of all LGBTQ+ folks on campus. 

 

queer_hack

We want to empower queer people to succeed in tech fields, build community, and inspire innovation. We are trying to change the culture of hackathons with the first queer hackathon - a hackathon hosted by and for queer students of all backgrounds. 

Tech classrooms, hackathons, and companies have historically been dominated by cis straight white men. Queer people feel isolated and excluded in these spaces, which is why there is low queer representation in tech fields and poor retention of queer students, particularly queer women of color, in computer science classrooms.
