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 surrounding area. We also seek to educate the campus and local community about heterosexism, genderism, racism, transmisogyny, and other forms of oppression and intersectionalities. We do this in order to strengthen and sustain an inclusive climate for LGBTQIA+ and LGBTQIA+-supportive individuals. We work closely with other campus departments, offices, and local organizations to foster student learning, development, and leadership and to support individual academic success while building LGBTQIA+ communities and enhancing the lives of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
