The Office of LBGT Student Services offers support, education and advocacy around issues of gender identity/expression and sexual orientation to the WMU community. We collaborate with student organizations, university departments and local organizations to provide our campus community with access to healthy resources, activities, and support services.

Diversity at Western Michigan University encompasses inclusion, acceptance, respect and empowerment. This means understanding that each individual is unique and that our commonalities and differences make the contributions we have to offer all the more valuable. Diversity includes the dimensions of race, ethnicity, and national and regional origins; sex, gender identity and sexual orientation; socioeconomic status, age, physical attributes and abilities; and religious, political, cultural, and intellectual ideologies and practices.
