Spectrum Center

For Students

Spectrum Center and the Office of Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs (MESA) are proud to continue an initiative centering Queer Transgender, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (QTBIPOC): community dinners centering the experiences of QTBIPOC students with hosts from the Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti area that can bring their own experiences to the table. Interested in being a host? There's more information further down the page!

We are currently working on the Togetherness series of events for Fall 2020. Given that these events are very much based around gathering for a meal, a lot of thought is being put into how to create that sense of community without risking anyone's chance of exposure. If you have any questions, please email plorant@umich.edu


For Faculty, Staff, and Community Members in the Ann Arbor / Ypsilanti Areas

Spectrum Center and the Office for Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs are looking for hosts for our Togetherness: QTIPOC Dinners. These meals center on shared experiences of Indigenous / Students of Color in the LGBTQ+ community and bringing people together. We provide the dinner, hosts bring the life into the space by encouraging conversation and sharing their own experiences.
