Queer Compass is a student-led, administration-supported initiative serving the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, asexual/ally+ (LGBTQIA+) population on Westminster's campus. Queer Compass aims to foster community, visibility, and openness with Westminster students through social events. Students can also participate in multifaceted, intersectional dialogues and advocacy events surrounding issues of marginalization, victimization, safety, power, privilege, identity, gender, sexuality, navigating higher education, and opportunities for growth.

Gender-Neutral Restrooms

With the generous donation of gender neutral bathroom signage from SmartSign, we are working to make Westminster University's bathrooms inclusive for all. Find gender neutral bathrooms on campus.


To create a space for members to learn, grow, and build friendships, we organize a variety of fun events throughout the school year. We have taken students on an excursion to the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, dinner at City Creek Center, and to the Mystery Escape Room at The Gateway. To celebrate the end of finals, we enjoy holding a closing social, which in the past has featured guest speakers from the Rape Recovery Center discussing healthy relationships.

We also invite members to volunteer at the Utah Pride Center’s annual Queer Prom for high school students at the Salt Palace each April, and we love to attend the Utah Pride Festival every summer.


Many organizations and foundations offer scholarships (both need- and merit-based) to students within the LGBTQIA+ community. Queer Compass compiled a list of LGBTQIA+ scholarships that Westminster students may be interested in or qualify for.
