A brief description of the institution’s LGBTQ-inclusive policies, programs and practices:
The mission of the Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Life is to engage the university community in the creation of an affirming and just campus environment while supporting the development of students of all gender and sexual identities. Emory University has a history of LGBT activism, involvement, and inclusion. The first student group on campus, the Gay Liberation Committee, was founded in 1972. Since that time, the University opened the Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Life and continued its work towards full access, inclusion and equity for LGBT students, faculty and staff. The Office of LGBT Life continually seeks to address policies, procedures, and facilities to make sure they fit the needs of our students. In our recent history, this has included making the Emory student health policy more trans-inclusive and increasing training for Student Health staff to better address the needs of LGBT-identified patients. Although there is still work to be done, Emory University is committed to setting a standard for colleges and universities throughout the United States
