Queer Compass is a student lead, administrative supported, initiative meant to better serve the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, Asexual/Ally+ (LGBTQIA+) population on Westminster's campus by fostering a sense of community, visibility and openness. Queer Compass will hold a monthly meeting in which attendees will be able to participate in multifaceted, intersectional, dialogues surrounding issues of marginalization, victimization, safety, power, privilege, identity, gender, sexuality, navigating higher education and opportunities for growth. Queer Compass will introduce and educate about resources and availability both on campus and in the community at large. The goals of Queer Compass are to provide an environment in which participants can feel safe and supported by not only the community of other attendees, but Westminster College as a whole.
