About Us

The QSC is one of nine diversity commissions under the ASUW. We’re a student-run, student-led, umbrella organization that aims to empower queer students on campus. Our mission is to…

  • Support, educate, and cultivate an accountable, inclusive environment
  • Provide non-heteronormative, anti-racist, anti-ableist, anti-sexist, and sex-positive programming, services, and atmospheres
  • Work to increase acceptance of queer students
  • Promote solidarity within the queer community, celebrating our intersecting identities

Some of the events, programs, and services we’ve done include…

  • Host our annual drag competition in the spring quarter
  • Fought for the implementation of a preferred name system within UW’s IT systems
  • Run a queer sex ed panel
  • Help bring guest speakers like Laverne Cox and Laura Jane Grace to campus
  • Stage the QSC Ball, an open mic & dance party for the UW’s queer community
  • Collaborate with the Q Center, Arts & Entertainment, and the eight other ASUW diversity commissions
  • Host community movie nights
  • Connect students to proper resources

and many more to come!
