Values & Operating Principles

Intersectionality

We believe in the power of experiences at the intersections of multiple identities and that intersectionality should serve as a lens through which we implement our student-centered programming, outreach across communities, ally with others, and dismantle multiple oppressions.

Social Justice

We actively address oppressions at multiple levels with the understanding that our personal, group, and societal power and privilege shape lived experiences.

Empowerment

We mobilize LGBTQ students’ sense of power and agency toward leadership, growth, and social change.

Celebration

We embrace the joys and complexities of having LGBTQ and ally identities.

Community

We create and maintain inclusive and affirming student-centered spaces in which to live, work, learn, and connect with others.

Collaboration

We build and model sustainable relationships, coalitions, and co-curricular student-centered partnerships that promote growth across communities at UW-Madison.

Inclusivity

We recognize the diversity of experiences, communities, and perspectives of people across the range of LGBTQ identities.
