Alumni Reunion 2022

Vanderbilt Reunion Come Back, Give Back

Alumni Reunion 2022 Coming Out Day Feature

The Office of LGBTQI Life is located within the K. C. Potter Center, named after a Vanderbilt pioneer for LGBTQI+ rights. In 2008, his former residence, Euclid House, became the K.C. Potter Center in honor of his support of inclusiveness and the queer and trans community. As one of the first Centers of its kind, the Office of LGBTQI Life serves the entire Vanderbilt community, particularly queer and trans students, faculty, and staff.

To celebrate the those who came before us and honor them at the 2022 Alumni Reunion, we are collecting stories, pictures, and videos of LGBTQI+ former students to be shared as an inspirational feature for Coming Out day on October 11th and presented at an Alumni Reunion event in the K.C. Potter Center from 4:00pm-5:00pm, October 7th, 2022. All are welcome to visit our space.
