LGBTQ+ at Oakton

Oakton Community College is committed to maintaining a peaceful and comfortable environment for all students to achieve their goals. The college strives to promote, foster, and support a safe and inclusive campus community for  students, employees, and guests.

Oakton recognizes the need for a welcoming campus where members of the diverse LGBTQ+ community are respected, valued, and supported. This mission is achieved through educational and informative training opportunities; services and resources; and Title IX compliance.

The LGBTQ+ Working Group at Oakton is dedicated to the college’s anti-bias values and works to institutionalize policy that advocates for the LGBTQ+ community. Examples of this work are to provide gender-inclusive restrooms, SafeZone trainings, and more inclusive classroom instruction.

The Office of Student Affairs provides support for all students at Oakton’s diverse campuses. For more information, contact us at studentaffairs@oakton.edu or 847.635.1739.
