Welcome, LGBTQ+ Alumni & Allies

Hanover College has committed to becoming a place where all can belong and thrive. We want to create that space for our alumni community and ask for your help to build that place for current and future students. 

Get Involved

LGBTQ+ Affinity Circle

The LGBTQ+ Affinity Circle formed to keep interested alumni informed about the happenings of LGBTQ+ organizations on campus and how to support them. If you're interested in partnering with and supporting organizations such as Hanover Royalty, Love Out Loud, the LGBTQ+ Center, and Project Cocoon, please fill out the form below to express interest in the LGBTQ+ Affinity Circle!

Homecoming Events

  • LGBTQ Center Open House - October 14 - 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. - Lynn Hall
    • The Center serves as a safe and inclusive gathering space. In this place, people are given the encouragement and resources to build meaningful relationships across differences and open their minds and hearts to matters relating to race, gender, and sexual orientation. Join us inside Lynn Hall through the door on the right for some fun activities and good conversations.
  • Project Cocoon Butterfly Gala - October 14 - 5 to 7 p.m. - Ogle Center
    • This event is dedicated to honoring alumni and current students who have generously supported the Project Cocoon Gift Fund. This fund provides financial aid to LGBTQ+ students to remove obstacles that hinder them from selecting housing environments that promote their well-being. Project Cocoon also offers professional resources such as internships and career opportunities to LGBTQ+ students. Enjoy some delicious food and refreshments while we acknowledge the valuable contributions of our alums and current students.
