Vision & Mission Statements

Vision Statement
The Lionel Cantú Queer Resource Center envisions a campus that connects, retains and sustains queer and trans students, staff, faculty and alumni. We envision communities where queer and trans people thrive and are fully liberated, valued and celebrated. 


Mission Statement 
The Lionel Cantu Queer Resource Center is the nexus of support and advocacy for the LGBTQIA+ community at the University of California, Santa Cruz. We create co-curricular experiences with students, staff and faculty to challenge cisheteronormative understandings of gender and sexuality. We build a more inclusive campus community with and for all queer and trans people by providing essential resources and education through programming, workshops and critical dialogues.
