Welcome to the
Through the Office for Gender and Sexual Diversity (OGSD), Tulane University facilitates a safe space for students who are exploring their identity and for those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, asexual & allies (LGBTIQA). At OGSD, students may connect with social, cultural, spiritual, academic, and health resources throughout campus.
The mission of the Office for Gender and Sexual Diversity (OGSD) is to work with all members of Tulane University to foster a climate of respect, understanding and appreciation for diverse genders, sexualities, cultures, and histories; to encourage critical thinking about gender and sexuality; to provide support and leadership development for students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, questioning, asexual, allies, (LGBTIQA) and gender non-conforming (GNC); and, to ensure an open and affirming learning environment, free of homophobia, heterosexism, transphobia, sexism, and other forms of gender- and sex-based bias and discrimination.
OGSD works closely with the Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) to provide educational, social, and cultural opportunities that address the ways in which gender and sexuality intersect with race, ethnicity, class, nationality, dis/ability, and religious identifications.
