Getting Involved

There are many ways that students can get involved in LGBT activism on campus. Student organizations at the University provide leadership and activism opportunities for LGBTQ-identified students and their Allies. There are many on-campus organizations. The Spectrum Center also offers a number of opportunities for students to get involved in different programs.

In and around Ann Arbor, LGBT-oriented community organizations are also involved in activism. There are many community organizations in the Ann Arbor area.

Student perspective: 

“I have worked with the Spectrum Center in different capacities and also contributed to policy level changes with Rackham. In both instances, volunteering my time, participating in discussions and meeting new people was a great way to become increasingly comfortable with my own sexuality.”
