The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Caucus at Virginia Tech formed in 1992 as an affiliate of the Women’s Network. The Caucus’s purpose is improving the working and learning environment for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender members of Virginia Tech and the surrounding community. The caucus also bring concerns about retention, classroom climate, and other issues to the attention of the administration, and partners with other groups to support programs and presentations with LGBT themes.
LGBT Caucus membership is open to all Virginia Tech faculty, staff, graduate students, and individuals who support the objectives of the Caucus.
Purpose Statement: The LGBT Caucus at Virginia Tech is committed to advancing equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and their families. The caucus seeks to improve the lives of LGBT individuals both at the University and in the New River Valley community through educational programming, social activities, public service, and outreach. Together with our allies, we strive to share information and initiate progressive community change as we visibly work for social justice and human rights. The caucus website can be found here.
