The Queer and Allied Student Union is one of the student organizations located in the Multicultural Center. The QASU has a physical office space in the Multicultural Center where students can hang out, decompress, and meet new people. The MC aims to enhance academic achievement, create a sense of belonging, celebrate diversity, and foster positive relations among UMD students, faculty and staff.
The MC is located on the 2nd floor of Kirby Student Center. The QASU cube is located past the front desk on the right and is the first cube on the left.
General meetings occur weekly. Check QASU’s social media for updates on location, topics, and other events.
