LGBTQA Advising and Advocacy Community

In 1997 the LGBTA Concerns Commission was formed to create an educational resource network for NACADA.  Through an environment of inclusion, the community offers opportunities and resources for professional growth and enhancement of our advising practices to further the development and success of LGBTQA students.

In January 2013, the commission changed its name to the Commission for LGBTQA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, and Allies) Advising and Advocacy. The name change was seen by members to be necessary as more and more students, staff and faculty at institutions world-wide are in need of LGBTQA support, advocacy, resources and research. The name again changed to reflect the Division change to Advising Communities in 2017.
