About Out Alumni in Chicago

Out Alumni in Chicago (OAC) is committed to building community among Chicagoland's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex collegiate alumni, and their allies. The Association seeks to encourage professional and personal networking and mentoring, create dialogue among LGBTQI alumni, and reconnect them to their respective alma maters. It will facilitate LGBTQI alumni involvement and volunteering in the broader community, and encourage discussion of issues of particular concern to Chicago's LGBTQI population.

Concomitant with the inclusive purpose of the Association, general membership shall be open to all LGBTQI alumni of post-secondary educational institutions who wish to associate with other such individuals, as well as any other individuals who support the purpose of the Association.

What's happening with OAC right now?

After organizing dozens of events over quite a few years, Out Alumni in Chicago is on hiatus as a group. As sometimes occurs with volunteer-driven initiatives, there is currently no one able to assume leadership of the group.

If you are interested in organizing events for the group, please email Eric Rogers (UChicago AB'05 AM'07) at ericrogers [at] gmail.com to inquire.
