VPA is an inclusive and equitable campus community where all members of diverse sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions are welcomed, valued, and affirmed. Through an initiative that includes educational training, experience and on-going learning opportunities, this framework encourages participants to identify themselves as visible supporters of the LGBTQQIAAPF (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, Ally, Pansexual, Fluid) community at CSUMB. Please join VPA students, faculty, and staff in bringing to life our vision of being a socially just community with a substantive commitment to multilingual, multicultural, and gender-equitable learning.
