Queer* Graduate Student Association (Q*GSA)



The Queer* Graduate Student Association is open to all Iowa State University graduate students who identify within the LGBTQIAA community. Our main purpose is to provide social opportunities to connect ISU LGBTQIAA graduate students across disciplines. In addition, it also allows graduate students the ability to network with each other in both personal and professional capacities. Professional possibilities could be research collaborations, helpful strategies for teaching, or other career related items.
