Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Below you will finds answers to frequently asked questions regarding the Marshall University LGBTQ+ Office.
 


Q. Do I have to be Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender to take advantage of the resources and programming?

A. No. The LGBTQ+ Office serves as a resource center for the entire campus community. Our events, unless otherwise stated, are open to students, faculty, staff, and the community regardless of sexual orientation and/or gender identity.


Q. Will people think that I am LGBTQ if I go into the LGBTQ+ Office?

A. As a campus resource center, we work with a large number of people – many of whom are not LGBT. It is not uncommon to find undergraduate and graduate students searching for resource material in the LGBTO, or straight allied members of the campus community stopping in to talk. Our volunteers and staff are also trained to make no assumptions on sexual orientation or gender identity, and the office maintains the confidentiality of its visitors.


Q. Why is the LGBTO Website not updated more often?

A. We try to update the LGBTO website as much as possible. However, with software and access restrictions it is a particularly laborious process so we generally do two major updates each semester. We try to check our links regularly and make sure information on the site is current. Thank you for your patience!
