Vision Statement 

Lambda Bridges strives to create a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere for Cal U’s campus and surrounding communities by engaging in open dialogue about issues that affect LGBTQIA individuals.  


The Lambda Bridges office will offer educational programming that fosters an understanding of the diversity within the LGBTQA community and promotes ally development to create an open and affirming environment for all.


Lambda Bridges will advocate for the specific and unique needs of the LGBTQA community and provide support for anyone dealing with coming-out or relationship issues, discrimination, or harassment. Through collaboration and community-building with campus departments, we will strive to create a safe and welcoming campus climate for all.


Lambda Bridges will empower the Cal U campus and surrounding communities to stand up against homophobia. Through leadership development, we will promote a more civically engaged community that values the dignity and worth of all.
