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."

Preface:
Whereas Santa Clara University, a Jesuit institution in the Catholic tradition, strongly encourages a respect and an understanding of the diverse nature of our society, and upholds the dignity of every individual, has recognized the need for a student organization to provide information to the entire Santa Clara University community concerning queer (all gender and sexuality minorities: asexual, demisexual, androgynous, agender, intersex, transgender, pansexual, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and queer, questioning, lesbian, and gay, to name a few) issues, and to provide support as well as resources to the SCU queer community.

Mission Statement:
To provide 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 – both closed to membership only and open to all of the campus – aimed at fostering a unified queer community at SCU.

Vision Statement
Santa Clara Queer strives to create and foster a unified queer community larger than SCQ and the RRC that is an integral part of the university community.
