The Q Center is recruiting for an Advisory Board! Please open the link below to read more about applying to participate. The deadline is October 6.

Q Center Advisory Board Application (

The Q Center has been serving LGBTQ+ students, staff, and faculty for over 20 years at the University of Washington. We are located on the Seattle campus inside the Husky Union Building. We offer programming, resources, and support to meet the evolving social, emotional, and wellness needs of our community members. We envision a community guided by principles of justice, compassion, respect, and liberation and we work to model those principles in our work every day.  

The Q is a student-centered, community serving, center that values justice-oriented perspectives, strong work ethic, and meaningful engagement with the community around us. Through programs and resources, the Q Center offers students, staff, and faculty connections, resources, and possibility.  The Q aims to foster a brave, affirming, liberatory, and celebratory environment for students, faculty, staff, and alumni of all sexual and gender orientations, identities, and expressions.

We are recruiting for an Advisory Board.  We are seeking 10 members – 4 students, 3 staff, and 3 faculty. The Advisory Board will help us (1) evaluate and transform our programming, (2) contribute to visioning work of our center, and (3) serve as a feedback loop so that the Q can better respond to the needs of our community.  

The Advisory Board will meet on a quarterly basis. Our meetings will last approximately an hour and a half, after the Q Center operating hours (after 4pm).  Each quarter will serve as a chance to provide updates, receive feedback, and to tackle challenges or requests presented to the Q Center.  

Subcommittees will also meet on a quarterly basis, on their own. The Q Center will not be coordinating subcommittee meetings but will encourage them to meet to discuss the needs specific to their leaders. There will be a subcommittee for students only, one for staff only, and another for faculty only.  

At this time, this work is not funded. One of our values is honoring labor.  At this time, we do not have funding for this role, but we intend to raise it. 

Because the Q Center’s work is primarily funded by the Student Activities Fee from UW Seattle students, the Advisory Board is not currently open to students, staff, and faculty outside of UW Seattle.  

Please reach out to with questions.
