Resources for LGBTQIA+ and Their Allies

LGBTQIA+ students are a vital part of the Bryant & Stratton College community. Whether they’re on-campus or online, they bring perspectives, experiences and energy that enrich every class and every discussion.

But it isn’t easy. Being a college student is challenging to begin with. Doing it while living your truth can add just that much more complication.

At Bryant & Stratton College, we see you and we want to make sure that you have the support you need. That’s why we’ve put together these resources: to make sure that our LGBTQ students know where to turn when they need a little backup. We’ve also included resources for our non-LGBTQIA+ students on how they can become better allies and provide the backup that their fellow Bobcats need.
