Cornell has many programs, organizations, and academic opportunities specifically for LGBTQ students. The central hub of programming and activity is Cornell’s LGBT Resource Center, which sponsors many undergraduate programs as well as the LGBTQ Graduate and Professional Student Coalition– which involves students earning their PhD in Science and Humanities, students at the Johnson Business School, Cornell University College for Veterinary Medicine and many other programs across campus. They host a bi-weekly social event for LGBTQ graduate/professional students, as well as a variety of other programs.
In terms of on campus activities, there are many social and educational events put on by Lambda, as well as many other groups, including the undergraduate umbrella group, Haven: the LGBTQ Student Union, and the LGBT Studies Department.
There is also on campus mental and physical health support specific to the LGBTQ community, offered by Gannett Health Services (which is the medical facility graduates with student health insurance use primarily) For more information, see: LGBTQ Health at Cornell
