Returning UMass Students Sought for LGBTQIA+ Mentorship Program

The Stonewall Center’s Peer Mentorship Program matches incoming first-year students to a mentor within the UMass queer community to provide academic, social, and emotional support. The program seeks to build community among LGBTQIA+ students on campus by fostering relationships between incoming and returning students. If you are a returning student willing to be a mentor, please apply here.

Our Mission

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.
