The Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services (iSMSS) works to create a society where all queer and trans people are free of discrimination.
Through our education programs, research, policy development, advocacy, and community services, we strive to:
- Empower the 2SLGBTQ+ community to thrive.
- Build leaders, particularly among youth.
- Build public awareness and allyship.
- Advance sexual and gender diversity studies to the forefront.
- Create hope.
We are unique in that we utilize research to inform our services, and our services drive the direction of our research.
