The Office of Equity and Inclusion also serves as a Pride Center and welcomes any student group that acknowledges and celebrates LGBTQIA and Gender identity. We currently house one active group but would love to work with more students to increase awareness, visibility, resources, and support.
Transgender, Other-Identified, Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, and Allies for Diversity (TOBGLAD) - TOBGLAD is a confidential group that serves as a support system for students and involves them in crucial social and political issues affecting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and ally communities. The organization's focus is to end discrimination through educating the Whittier College community. Annual events include invited speakers, Allies Training, National Coming Out Day, Day of Silence, and LGBT History Month (October)
