The MSU LGBTQ Resource Directory provides a list of education, advocacy, and support resources for students identifying as LGBTQ or allies seeking information and resources.  The Diversity Awareness Office provides educational and social programs, support services, and resources intended to:

  • Raise awareness regarding lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender issues
  • Affirm lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender identities and lives by fostering a safe, inclusive, and multicultural environment for MSU’s LGBTQ community
  • Support the academic mission and statement on diversity of Montana State University by promoting the inclusion of LGBTQ topics in academic and extracurricular programs
  • Build linkages with other LGBTQ organizations and allied programs through outreach and community development efforts

The Diversity Awareness Office features a Student Commons on the 3rd floor of the Strand Union Building (SUB 368). The Student Commons is a space in which students may socialize, relax between classes, engage in meaningful conversations about identity, connect with resources, and learn more about opportunities for diverse students.
