Pards Against Sexual Assault - PASA
PASA is a peer educational group founded to educate Lafayette on gender violence and sexual assault awareness through programming. Two of the biggest events held included Denim Day, Take Back the Night followed by a speak out, and panels on Title IX and the "me too." movement. The group also facilitated individual student organization training.

Quest provides students, faculty, and staff with a supportive and engaging environment in which to discuss issues of sexual orientation and gender identity, to support those struggling with these issues, and to help educate people about sexual orientation and gender identity.
Pride Association for Leadership and Mentoring (PALM)
PALM matches LGBT+ faculty and staff to students by survey, placing them in groups we call families. Each family will consist of six mentees (at most) and one to two mentors (depending on the number of mentees). Our goal is to establish a network of mentors and peers and to create relationships mentees can lean on.
Gender & Sexuality Programs (GSP)
Taking time to sponsor programs that help celebrate everyone's gender (male, female, trans*, gender fluid, etc.) and sexuality (heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, asexual, pansexual, queer, etc.) is one of the main focuses of the office. The Gender & Sexuality Programmer is Grayson Thompson.
