TCU Gay-Straight Alliance
The Gay-Straight Alliance focuses on creating a safe space for LGBTQ students on campus. It also welcomes allies and facilitates relations between LGBTQ students and straight allies. We encourage discussion and education on salient issues involving the community, and are involved with activism within and outside the college campus.

TCU Inclusiveness & Intercultural Services: www.diversity.tcu.edu
To advocate and promote diversity, inclusiveness, and cultural awareness throughout the TCU community
To accomplish our mission, Inclusiveness & Intercultural Services (IIS) provides various programs, activities, events and organizations through which students, faculty, staff and the community can learn, grow, interact and develop. While we focus on education equity, student learning and retention, we pride ourselves on offering everyone a space of acceptance and understanding. Through programs like the Community Scholars Program and the Minority High School Conference, our community outreach initiatives for Fort Worth and surrounding area school districts has excelled. As a part of our on-campus initiatives, students, faculty and staff, through the Inclusiveness Task Force and Council on Diversity, oversee a University-wide annual conference and seminars for faculty and staff. Our goal is to improve understanding and to provide opportunities for dialogues and interaction around the issues of diversity and inclusiveness for the TCU community.

Women’s & Men’s Programs: www.sds.tcu.edu/students/womens-mens/
Home to Allies, a group formed by faculty, staff, and students with the intention of providing visible, tangible support for lesbian, gay bisexual, transgender, and questioning members of TCU’s community, TCU Women’s & Men’s Programs strives to recognize and diminish prejudices, eliminate barriers, and create a supportive climate and space for all.

Religious & Spiritual Life: www.faith.tcu.edu
The staff of TCU’s Office of Religious and Spiritual Life believe that living life “spirituality whole” (where our inner values and beliefs align with our outer actions) enhances the life of individuals as well as of the whole community. To that end, RSL provides programs and resources to support all students at TCU, including LGBTQ students, so that they can explore matters of faith, practice religious traditions and develop spiritual practices in a safe, respectful and inclusive environment. Among our many roles, we connect students to faith communities both on campus and off, offer pastoral care, and create opportunities outside the classroom to explore the role of faith, religion and spirituality in all facets of life. For decades at TCU, the RSL office has worked to be an ally and a place of support to LGTBQ students, faculty and staff and we continue to do so.
