Commission on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Equity
What Does the Commission Do?
Created in 1991, the Commission on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Equity is an advisory group to the President. The purpose of the Commission is to improve the climate for diversity within Penn State by specifically addressing issues affecting the welfare of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) members of the University community.
The Commission serves to improve the climate for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender members of the Penn State community through examination of current policies and practices and through the initiation and promotion of programs which will result in a more equitable and supportive environment. This is accomplished through our current standing committees and through the initiation of ad hoc committees for special topics.

The Commission membership includes Penn State administrators, faculty, exempt staff, nonexempt staff, technical service employees, and graduate and undergraduate students.
