Through the course of history, countless individuals have been targeted based on their appearance, voice, beliefs, and romantic interests. At Villanova, we believe that the best way to combat these occurrences is to establish an environment of equality and shared respect.

The LGBTQ+ Community at Villanova is active, welcoming, and committed to fostering inclusion on campus. By focusing on visibility and action, we have seen steady growth in support from students and faculty, both as allies and members of the LGBTQ+ Community. Villanova has supported and encouraged the creation of a safe environment for LGBTQ+ students to gather and share experiences, whether in a confidential setting or in a more open setting with friends and allies.

Please take the time to explore the various LGBTQ+ groups at Villanova University as well as the resources gathered here. Feel free to contact our faculty or student representatives with any questions.
