Cantú Queer Center
The Cantú Queer Center at UC Santa Cruz exists to provide an open, safe, inclusive, intercultural space, promoting education about all genders and sexualities, and empowering self-exploration of these identities. We support same-gender-loving students, faculty, staff, and alumni, as well as families, friends, and the entire campus community. We serve as a resource to LGBTQQIA students by providing opportunities for leadership and personal development, and by creating programs and services that work to eliminate heterosexism, bi-phobia, and gender-identity oppression. We strive to develop an atmosphere of acceptance and well-being from which the campus community can fulfill the academic mission of the university.
