The Office for Institutional Equity and Belonging is dedicated to providing programs and opportunities that promote and celebrate the LGBTQ+ experience.

Wheaton College’s Network for LGBTQ+ Inclusion, Support, and Advocacy is a group of dedicated faculty and staff members working to enhance the social, emotional, and academic lives of LGBTQ+ students.

Committee members serve as mentors and advocates, and collaborate with LGBTQ+ students and student organizations on campus. They generate and support a wide variety of events, such as National Coming Out Day, Lavender Graduation, and Trans Day of Remembrance to increase visibility of the LGBTQ+ community.

Some of us identify within the LGBTQ+ community, and some of us do not. All members of The LGBTQ+ Network are committed to better serving LGBTQ+ students. Any member of the Wheaton College community who is well-versed in LGBTQ+ struggles, concerns, and/or theory is welcome to join The LGBTQ+ Network.
