LGBTQ+ Resources

In the Family Spirit: Embracing our LGBTQ+ Community

The University of Dayton strives to foster a community where all members, including those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) are welcomed, respected, safe, and valued. We are actively working to engage LGBTQ+ alumni in these efforts on campus and in our alumni communities. Opt in to receive communication about LGBTQ+ resources and events.

Guided by our Catholic and Marianist values, the University of Dayton is committed to honoring the intrinsic value and dignity of all people.

"In the Family Spirit” — the University of Dayton Framework for LGBTQ+ Policies, Practices, and Communication

It is important for the University to formally articulate its philosophy of why and how we support our LGBTQ+ community. Our approach is grounded in our Catholic, Marianist mission – which includes honoring the intrinsic value of all people and fostering a community where all people feel respected as children of God. This rationale stems from our mission as a university where rigorous intellectual inquiry and vigorous dialogue occur.
