Special Project - LGBT Program Support
Murray State University leadership, together with students, envisioned and established the LGBT Programming Office as a part-time office in 2012 and then grew to a standalone office in 2015. In addition, there are now more than 350 faculty and staff participating in the Safe Zone Project where Murray State employees have indicated their support for the LGBTQ+ community and strive to provide support throughout campus. Since its establishment, there have been thousands of students come through the office or attend an event that supports and promotes the LGBT Community. The unit supports three student-lead organizations: Alliance, LGBTQA Ambassadors and ERacers.
Programming support, from alumni and friends will provide funding for students with a passion for creating an atmosphere of acceptance through awareness and student leadership opportunities. With your help, LGBT students and their allies will have opportunities to gain valuable leadership skills, learn from others in a safe environment as they work towards their own personal self-identification, and continue to work on gaining more acceptance as we provide additional awareness on the campus of Murray State University and the world beyond their college experience.
