Trans @ Colgate

Find out about the resources available for trans and gender-nonconforming people at Colgate.

Trans @ Colgate


A student-run group of LGBTQ members dedicated to enhancing the social and support networks for queer students. This group recognizes that the campus climate might not always feel the most friendly, and therefore provides a supportive confidential social outlet, a place for members to share common experiences, and an avenue for members to organize around relevant political issues and events.
