LGBTQIA+

In keeping with Porterville College’s commitment to creating a safe campus, the Office of Student Life exists to provide a space for members of the college community to explore issues relating to sexual and gender identities, practices, and politics. The Office of Student Life offers Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning, Intersex and Asexual (LGBTQIA+) students and staff a place to join in the common celebration of their experience. It also promotes student leadership, professional and academic equity, and visibility of gender and sexual minorities in addition to providing educational resources and programs for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Questioning (LGBTQ) and Allies community. We value intersectionality, racial and economic justice, and support other campus groups in striving towards such justice.

Campus Contact:

Since homophobia and limited understanding negatively impact LGBTQIA+ individuals, we strive to make it known that the LGBTQIA+ population is welcomed in any environment at PC. Our campus identifies a growing network of students, faculty, staff, and community members who are willing and prepared to provide support and information to LGBTQIA+ individuals. If you are a PC Student or a community member who needs more information regarding LGBTQIA+ matters at Porterville College, please contact:
