LGBTQ+ Alumni Council

The LGBTQ+ Alumni Council hopes to support LGBTQ+ students and recognize the achievements of exemplary LGBTQ+ alumni. As our organization connects and collaborates within the LGBTQ+ community, we invite all LGBTQ+ Tritons to join us as we work together to build a better future.


The ongoing mission of the Council is to positively influence, unite, advocate, and promote the UC San Diego LGBTQ+ community of alumni, students, staff and faculty. We function to foster and bind the community, in which the Council may provide the UC San Diego LGBTQ+ Alumni network meaningful opportunities and resources for: professional and personal support, engagement, representation and mentorship.
