The mission of the LGBTQ+ Employee Alliance at Southeast Missouri State University is to be a resource for current employees (Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Assistants) and students with the intent to help guide the University and our allies in creating an environment that is open and affirming by:

  • Fostering a safe and receptive environment for LGBTQ+ students, faculty, and staff on campus
  • Being a visible and active part of the University community through events for LGBTQ+ community members and allies
  • Educating the University community about issues faced by LGBTQ+ individuals
  • Advocating for LGBTQ+ issues to be addressed within the structure of the University
  • Providing resources for LGBTQ+ employees and students
