» LGBTQIA+ Staff & Faculty Forum

The LGBTQIA+ Staff & Faculty Forum started in Fall 2017 and was developed by staff and faculty members who embrace, celebrate, and support the LGBTQIA+ communities on campus through outreach activities and events.

Mission Statement

The mission of the LGBTQIA+ Staff and Faculty Forum is to build intentional community grounded in our collective liberation; to hold our institution accountable for its commitment to cultivating a welcoming campus environment for all; and to provide support to LGBTQIA+ students, staff, and faculty by combating cisnormativity and heteronormativity throughout our campus and in the broader OC community.


The Bylaws of the Chapman University LGBTQIA+ Staff and Faculty Forum (also known as QSFF) were adopted on December 10, 2021.
