Out and Ally List

“Without Community, there is no liberation.” –Audre Lorde

The LGBT Center is proud to present the MSU Faculty and Staff Out and Ally List. This list exists to create unity and support on campus for students, faculty and staff that identify as part of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community. Some individuals on the list identify as part of the LGBT Community and others are straight allies to the LGBT Community.
The list is a tangible expression of the commitment of the faculty and staff here at MSU to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Furthermore, this list identifies key people on campus that can provide opportunities for mentorship (both academic and non-academic) between students and faculty/staff. Individuals on the Out and Ally List are proud to support the LGBT Community.

*If you are a current faculty or staff member and would like to be included on this list, please fill out this survey form.
