LGBTQ+ Education, Advocacy & Programming Initiative (LEAP)


The LEAP Initiative exists to advance the mission of UT Dallas by nurturing a safe and inclusive environment that values and celebrates the sexual orientation and gender identity/expression of students, staff and faculty. The mission is accomplished through programming, educational workshops/training, and activities that promote the exchange of ideas and greater understanding of LGBT+ issues, promote workplace equity and facilitate educational growth in a climate of mutual respect.

LEAP supports LGBT+ students, staff and faculty by:

  • Celebrating and observing nationally recognized days related to the LGBT+ movement
  • Advocating for friendly and inclusive policies for the purpose of attracting and retaining talented students, staff and faculty at UT Dallas
  • Training SAFE ZONE Allies

Activities are also accomplished through the partnership, collaboration and volunteer support of students, staff and faculty who serve on the LEAP Working Group.
