LGBTQ Support

Student Success is at the core of all we do at Morehead State University, and we believe that a diverse and inclusive campus plays a significant role in guaranteeing this success. Diversity, as a concept, describes an inclusive community of people with varied human characteristics, ideas and world views related, but not limited to, to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, religion, color, creed, national origin, disabilities, socio-economic status, life experiences, geographical region, or ancestry.  Inclusion recognizes the creation of a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment by MSU that honors and respects those differences.

Morehead State University is a welcoming community for students, faculty and staff that identify as LGBTQ as well as allies and advocates for the community.  We recognize and support the identities of our faculty, staff and students on their own terms specifically in terms of expression and identity.

To support and provide help to anyone that needs it, we have compiled a list of resources available on campus, in the community as well as beyond MSU and the Morehead community.

Counseling and Health Services offers counseling to MSU students at no cost to the student, and has a counselor on staff that is trained to work with the LGBTQ community to help assist with any issues students may have while at MSU. To make an appointment and for more information please visit the Counseling and Health Services website.

Camden Carroll Library offers support and resources for anyone interested in reading about, researching or learning about the LGBTQ community. For more information please visit the library's research guide. This guide is to help the LGBTQ community access library resources, physical resources on campus, and show support.

Student Activities, Inclusion and Leadership has a designated area for the inclusion of students that are looking to a space to interact, study and learn more about inclusion at Morehead State University.  Located in the Student Success suite 109F, this space is designed as a quiet and safe space for students to promote personal growth and academic success at MSU.
 

Safe Zone Training

Safe Zone Training creates ongoing educational experiences between Safe Zone trained individuals and the MSU community, encouraging students, faculty, and staff to explore cultural identities, values, and stereotypes in order to better understand how these issues impact the greater community. Learn more about Safe Zone training opportunities at MSU.
