Land Acknowledgement Statement

We want to acknowledge that we gather in the traditional land of the Delaware, Kickapoo, Miami, Mound Builders, Piankashaw, Potawatomi, Shawnee, and Wea. The Wea were a Miami-Illinois originally located in western Indiana. They were part of the larger Illinois Confederation. Peoples past and present, and honor with gratitude the land itself and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations. This calls us to commit to continuing to learn how to be better stewards of the land we inhabit as well.

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning (LGBTQ) Student Resource Center 

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning (LGBTQ) Student Resource Center provides resources, services, and programs for students that may have questions pertaining to the lives of LGBT students or students that already identify as LGBT and are looking for a safe space. The center is designed to create a safe, inclusive Indiana State University community regardless of a person’s sexual orientation, gender identity and/or gender expression. The Center will actively collaborate with the Spectrum student organization.

 

Spectrum is the student-led organization at Indiana State University that exists to unify gender and sexual minorities and their allies. Through programming and community outreach, Spectrum works to strengthen the community and create an environment that fosters acceptance for anyone, regardless of sexuality or gender identity. Spectrum encompasses a broad range of individuals from different backgrounds who are committed to equality. We come from the campus community, area colleges, and the Terre Haute community. If you are interested in joining Spectrum, join us during the academic year Tuesdays at 7 p.m. on the 3rd floor of HMSU. Visit their website http://www2.indstate.edu/spectrum/ or email at indstatespectrum@gmail.com for more information or to get involved.

 

The Alpha Delta Phi Society is a gender-inclusive literary society dedicated to developing character, scholarship, and enduring friendships. Our mission is to bring together a diverse and supportive community, foster intellectual and personal growth, and cultivate passionate individuals of good character and integrity. As a living, breathing organization rooted in a tradition of shared values, we proudly redefine what it means to be a Greek-letter organization.

The Alpha Delta Phi Society, formed by a group of chapters that withdrew from the Alpha Delta Phi Fraternity in 1992, is an independent and legally separate gender-inclusive organization not affiliated with the Fraternity.
