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 or 847.635.1739.
