The Big 12 LGBTQIA & Allies Summit was developed as a program of Texas Tech University, and brings together college students, faculty, staff, and community members who are committed to inclusion, access, and equity within higher education and beyond. Throughout this annual two and a half day gathering, participants have opportunities to network with other leaders and community organizers, engage with social justice advocates through educational programming, and learn from trailblazing professionals for LGBTQIA equality on the national stage.
