OSU Rainbow Connect

OSU Rainbow Connect is an official network open to Oregon State alumni and friends who identify with and support LGBTQIA+ communities. Our goals are to facilitate connections, engage alumni and students in learning and healing, share opportunities and guidance for emerging LGBTQIA+ professionals, and encourage advocacy that creates a more inclusive Oregon State.

 

Meet regularly and build your support network. Contact our leadership team or join our Facebook group to learn how you can get involved.
