Q Camp is a program of the LGBT Equity Center, a professionally staffed office of the university. We encourage all UMD undergraduate students who are or want to be involved with LGBTQ+ communities on campus, including LGBTQ+ people as well as allies/supporters, to apply. This program is well-suited for first-semester freshmen and transfer students looking to engage more deeply with the campus LGBTQ+ community. Throughout the weekend, students will participate in activities meant to provide positive supports around the following areas:
- Identity development
- Community building
- Ways to be involved on campus
In 2020, this program will include a copy of the Queer and Trans Resilience Handbook by Dr. Anneliese Singh. Participants who are selected to attend the synchronous camp will join us in a Zoom session. The application is due Friday, September 25, 2020, at midnight.
