The QSCC is an umbrella organization for many of the LGBTQIA+ student groups offered at the University of Minnesota. See the right side of this page (or on our home page) for the complete schedule of student groups for this semester. Please check our Facebook page for any updates on groups from the facilitators.

NeuroQueers: (Not Active)
NeuroQueers is a group centered around LGBTQ+ people who would benefit from a space that celebrates neurodiversity.
The group will feature discussions of mental health topics, ways to healthily cope, resources on and off campus, venting, and just having a moment to relax and de-stress.
Since the QSCC is a safe space, there will be minimal talk of triggering topics.

n0nb1nary is a group that provides support and a safe environment for people who don’t fall within the gender binary. Meetings will be held weekly/biweekly depending on the year’s schedule to relax, discusses issues relating to gender, and provide education for anyone who chooses to come. n0nb1nary strives to provide a presence and an awareness of nonbinary identities on campus, as the University of Minnesota does not yet universally recognize people who are not male or female.
