Need help with advocacy?

If you you would like to learn more about being advocate for LGBTQ people on campus, contact the LGBTQA Center. We can help you to learn about LGBTQ identities, familiarize yourself with the University's programs and services, and point you toward resources at UVM and in the wider community.


UVM's Our Common Ground values: Respect, Integrity, Innovation, Openness, Justice and Responsibility provide the foundation for inclusive community that values every individual and their multiple intersecting identities.

The LGBTQA Center strives to include these values into all of our educational programs, exploring how issues surrounding race, class, religion, ability, etc. interact with sexual and gender identities and their expression.

Past trainings include undergraduate and graduate classrooms, UVM's Greek organizations, Police Services, Dean of Students Office, Athletics, and the College of Medicine. We tailor trainings to your needs and interests, including topics like: complex identity intersections, responding effectively to bias, LGBTQ trends and issues, understanding microaggressions and stereotype threat, and TRANS 101.

To request a training or presentation, call at 656-8637 or contact us at We look forward to working with you.

Advocate Training

We believe it’s important and necessary for LGBTQ people to have advocates- heterosexual and/or gender normative people who will take a stand against transphobia, homophobia, and heterosexism, support LGBTQ people, and help build communities based upon equality and respect.
