Welcome to Santa Clara Queer (SCQ), SCU's Queer Social Group!

We are a club on campus devoted to providing a safe space for queer students of all outness levels to form community and companionship, a social network of queer undergraduate and alumni students, and programming aimed at fostering a unified queer community at SCU. 

Membership is anonymous to protect the identity of those in our group who are not yet out or would feel uncomfortable attending group events. 

*note: We use the term "queer" in our documents to refer to the community and people in a way that is inclusive of all gender and sexuality minorities (asexual, demisexual, androgynous, agender, intersex, transgender, pansexual, bisexual, queer, questioning, lesbian, and gay, to name a few) not just those listed in "LGBTQ."

Club Overview

Things to know about student clubs at SCU:

1) In conjunction with the Center for Student Leadership (CSL), SCU supports several types of student organizations including 9 Chartered Student Organizations (CSOs) and over 150 Registered Student Organizations (RSOs or clubs).

2) SCU has delegated the responsibility of registering student clubs to the Associated Student Government (ASG). The Student Affairs Committee (SAC) of the ASG Senate reviews and approves new clubs and allocates student activity fees to all clubs.

3) CSL advises all clubs, provides organizational and leadership development resources, supports event planning, helps clubs manage financial transactions, and is the signatory authority for all forms, agreements, and contracts.

4) Each club is advised by CSL staff, and may have (at their own discretion) another faculty/staff advisor. This secondary advisor is not required, though.

5) If you have any questions about the new club registration process, contact Samantha Kibbish at skibbish@scu.edu.
