This will be done through a mentoring program for current students and through networking and professional development opportunities.

Awards & Recognition Committee: Recognizes LGBTQIA alumni, faculty, staff, and students who have made a significant contribution to the university and/or have made significant/historical contributions to LGBTQIA people and the overall society. The Awards & Recognition Committee will encourage alumni, faculty, staff, and students to nominate people each year and select a class of awardees that will be comprised of 3-5 people.

Scholarship & Philanthropy Committee: The Scholarship & Philanthropy Committee will develop recommendations regarding funds, programs and projects that the alumni network will officially support. The committee will collaborate with the communication committee develop the messages and campaigns to encourage giving. The committee will also develop an annual calendar and plan for a long-term fundraising goal and a possible scholarship fund for the network.
