Graduate Students

Get connected

Please join the LGBT Equity News list to stay in touch and to know what is going on in the community. Please also "like" our page on Facebook as another great way to get connected.

Programs and events

Whether you are LGBT-identified or an ally, we invite all graduate students to join the Rainbow Terrapin Network, as a way to show your support for LGBT inclusion and to learn more about the resources at University of Maryland.

Also of interest to graduate students may be the LGBT Equity Scholarship, and all of the items above under the Resources, Events, and About Us sections of our website.


There are three organizations specifically for graduate students, one is QueerGrads, which is for all graduate students, and there is Smith Pride Alliance, which is for MBA students and MSPP Policy Pride Council, for policy students.

If you teach courses...

We recommend our Speakers Bureau program as an easy to plug-in program where our peer educators can come to your class/group and speak about their own experiences as LGBT people or allies, and they will engage your group in a discussion.

Students may also benefit from our LGBT Resource Library. If your students are writing papers or looking for resources, this might be a good starting place. Please send your students our way!
