The Commission for LGBT People offers a Mentoring Program to match undergraduate students with faculty and staff mentors.

The Commission for LGBT People is a body appointed by the chancellor to advise on planning, implementation, and evaluation of university programs, policies, and services designed to improve the status of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people on the Knoxville campus.

We, the Commission for LGBT People of the University of Tennessee, stand for inclusion, equity, and diversity on our campus and in our community. We stand together in opposition to ideologies that threaten, promote, and engage explicit, implicit, and systemic oppression, hate, and violence on our campus and in our community. We are committed to promoting student, faculty, and staff safety, well-being, and inclusion, through active advocacy efforts with campus administrators and community partners. Vol Means All.

The Commission, in its role as an advocacy group, is committed to the protection and advancement of LGBT students, faculty, and staff at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

BE THERE! October 5th from 5-7pm at Sunspot on Cumberland Ave.
