LGBTQA+ Faculty & Staff Association

About

The LGBTQA+ Faculty & Staff Association was created for Iowa State University faculty and staff who are members of or who are supportive of the LGBTQ+ community at ISU. The LGBTQA+ FSA exists to provide its members with opportunities for networking, career development, socializing, and becoming a bigger part of the ISU/Ames community.  The FSA is also committed to the larger LGBTQ+ community on campus and strives to support and connect in positive ways with other LGBTQ+ groups at Iowa State.

Events

Every fall, we host a welcome event for members and invited guests.  Throughout the year, our social committee plans regular get-togethers of our membership in both formal and informal settings.  Our leadership team meets monthly to further the mission of the FSA.  As a whole group, we help plan and support activities hosted by The Center for LGBTQIA+ Student Success and the many LGBTQA+ student organizations on campus, particularly Coming Out Week in the fall and ISU Pride Week in the spring.
