STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
Boston College, as a Catholic and Jesuit University, has a responsibility to promote the pastoral care of all members of the university community and is committed to the intellectual, social, and spiritual development of all our students. The University seeks to foster a campus culture that welcomes diversity, embraces inclusivity, promotes dialogue, and creates a safe and supportive environment for all.
This website lists resources for Boston College students who may be questioning their sexual or gender identity, have questions arising from their sexual or gender identity, have general questions about the GLBTQ community, or just need someone to dialogue with about their personal lives and how to be their most authentic selves. While an ally is listed for each office, it by no means indicates that this particular individual is the only person in the office who can provide assistance.
The variety of these resources reflects the commitment of Boston College to providing a safe, caring, and supportive environment for the healthy development of all of our students. Connecting students with this information promotes wellness and fosters greater opportunities to learn about respect, equality, and identity while contributing to the development of a more just and authentic community.
Caroline develops, facilitates, and
oversees a support network for GLBTQ students on campus in addition to her many other duties as the Assistant Dean for Student Outreach & Support. She is
an ally to the GLBTQ community and
works to improve the GLBTQ student
experience through education, outreach, and support. Please reach out to her at
any time with questions, concerns,
issues, or ideas!
