LGBTQA+ Student Resources

Penn State Hazleton is committed to creating an environment inclusive to all students, including those who identify within the LGBTQA+ community. The campus community demonstrates their commitment to inclusion by supporting students, providing educational opportunities, and serving as advocates.

In the role of student resource contact, Robert Knight serves as a member of the Coalition for Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (CSOGI) and a liaison to University Park’s Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity. (See Rob Knight's contact information below.)

Safe Zone Members
Many staff and faculty members across Penn State Hazleton received specialized Safe Zone 101 training as a part of the Safe Zone Program. The Safe Zone program is intended to help create visibility of the LGBTQA+ student populations, understand the issues facing LGBTQA+ students, and make students aware of the various resources available to them. Students are encouraged to contact one or more of the following Safe Zone Members for more information. (See members below.)

Gender & Sexuality Alliance
Students at Penn State Hazleton have formed a student group called the Gender & Sexuality Alliance (GSA). The group chose a name that represented their intention to be as inclusive as possible and invites everyone to join them, regardless of their gender or sexual identity. The organization is open to LGBTQA+ community members and allies, alike. The organization strives to provide support, education and advocacy to the LGBTQA+ community and the larger Penn State Hazleton community.
