Returning UMass Students Needed for LGBTQIA+ Mentorship Program
The Stonewall Center's Peer Mentorship Program matches incoming LGBTQIA+ students with returning students to provide academic, social, and emotional support. Through the program, incoming students more easily become involved in queer life on campus and more quickly understand the workings of the university. If you are interested in being a mentor, please fill out the form here.
The mission of the Stonewall Center is to provide support, resources, programming, and advocacy for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex, asexual (LGBTQIA) and allied students, staff, and faculty at UMass Amherst and for the larger Pioneer Valley. We also seek to educate the campus and local community about heterosexism, genderism, other forms of oppression, and the intersections of identities and oppressions in order to strengthen and sustain an inclusive climate for LGBTQIA individuals and their allies. We work closely with other campus departments and offices and local organizations to foster student learning, development, and leadership; promote academic excellence; build LGBTQIA communities; and enhance the lives of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
