Pitt LGBTQ Task Force Calls For Dedicated Center and Resources

May 20, 2021


High rates of LGBTQ sexual assault, no centralized resources, and the only R1 University without a dedicated space for LGBTQ students; these are some of the many troubling conditions at the University of Pittsburgh detailed in a first-of-its-kind report by the Pitt LGBTQ Task Force. The report’s goal is to propose steps for the Pitt administration to better support the LGBTQ community. With the release of the report, the task force is asking for community support in the form of a petition as they call for a commitment from University leadership.
