On-going Opportunities

 The LGBTQ Advisory Board

Born out of a desire to make Northwestern a more inclusive and supportive environment for LGBTQIA students, MSA established the LGBTQ Advisory Board in 2016. Through relationships and partnerships across campus, MSA identified a need for LGBTQIA undergraduate and graduate students to be in community and to build coalitions together. 

The Advisory Board meets monthly to discuss any issues and or needs for LGBTQIA students. Some of the Advisory Board’s work includes a Queer Wellness Retreat, sending a delegation to the LGBTQ Task Force’s National Conference called Creating Change, and serving as a space for feedback for various NU departments.

Creating Change Conference Delegation

The National LGBTQ Task Force sponsors and organizes the Creating Change Conference, the foremost political, leadership and skills-building conference for the LGBTQ social justice movement. Since 2019, MSA has assembled a small delegation of Northwestern undergraduate and graduate students to attend the Creating Change conference in January, with all expenses covered by MSA.
