ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY

Starting in 1995, the Dean of Students' Office of Student Support had a staff person providing support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) students and students questioning or dealing with their sexual or gender identity. This unit offered peer counseling programs, peer-led support groups, and relevant events and programming. In the spring of 1999, Dean of Students staff brought the student-led support groups together under an administrative umbrella called Haven. An online peer mentoring service, faQ, was started in spring 2006.
