LGBTQIA is an acronym that stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, Asexual/Aromantic.  Some people change the order of the letters in the acronym, some people only use some of the letters, and some people have differing opinions about which letters should be included.  For more information on these terms, please check out our Terminology.

As outlined in the Vision Statement, Anoka-Ramsey Community College embraces diversity within and beyond the college and responds to the needs of its local community, nation, and world.
