QUEST Mission

Foster a diverse, LGBT-affirming community of staff and faculty at Stanford through advocacy initiatives, community programming, and meaningful collaborations with student groups, on-campus organizations, and off-campus organizations.

QUEST is a network of Stanford LGBT staff and faculty. We work to foster and support a diverse LGBT campus community, addressing social issues as well as assisting the University with individual, group, and political concerns of LGBT staff and faculty.

Through our programs, QUEST hopes to:

  • support Stanford in its effort to become a model institution on LGBT issues
  • provide opportunities to connect to Stanford and to each other,
  • network and have fun

Membership is open to all LGBT Stanford faculty and staff and their friends, partners and allies. QUEST is closely allied with two other campus LGBT organizations: the LGBT CRC (students) and Stanford Pride (LGBTQQI alumni/ae). In addtion, QUEST co-sponsors events with fellow Stanford staff groups, forming partnerships across the broader Stanford community.

Become an Organizer!

QUEST is always looking for ideas for events and programs. Organizing is easy, a great way to get to know the awesome people who make up the LGBT community here at Stanford, and a way to share your particular talents and intrests to our community. To get started, contact a current QUEST orananizer with your idea / event and we'll be happy to help you get involved.
