Institute for Sexual Minority Studies & Services


Ensuring an excellent education for all University of Alberta students means that students study, learn, live and recreate in a caring and safe environment. With the U of A community, the Board of Governors is committed to making the U of A Campus a ‘safe space’ for queer staff and students.

-Michael Phair, Chair, Board of Governors


Diversity and inclusiveness strengthen and enrich our university and our community. Everyone on each of our campuses should feel safe, respected and valued regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

-Doug Stollery, Chancellor
