The University of Iowa Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer Staff & Faculty Association (the "Association") was organized in 1990 to support the interests of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, queer campus community.

The Association is open to any University employee - merit staff, professional/scientific staff, graduate assistant, faculty, administrator or community member.

Meetings are held monthly and feature guest presentations as well as discussions of current topics recommended by members. In addition, the Association sponsors other public activities throughout the year ranging from lectures to cultural performances and social events.

The Association is governed by the membership-at-large. Business responsibilities are supervised by a volunteer executive board.

The Association's services and activities are open to everyone.
