Scope and Contents
From the Collection: The Purdue LGBTQ+ Student Alliance records (1994-2015) document the history of LGBTQ student organizations on Purdue’s campus since the mid-1990s. As an umbrella organization for the LGBTQ+ community at Purdue University, the collection contains materials from related relevant entities throughout the years, including the Purdue Ally Association, the LGBT Advisory Board, and the Office of the Dean of Students Diversity Committee. Of particular interest might be the Ally Association Member Manual and the various LGBTQ-related newspaper clippings, as they paint a picture of student activism on campus as well as the legislative battles and hate crimes against the LGBTQ+ community in the state and nationwide. The collection was transferred by the organization in 2016. The collection may be useful for researchers interested in Purdue’s and Indiana’s LGBTQ history and student activities. Types of materials include: newspaper clippings, correspondence, printed materials (flyers, brochures, posters), banner, canvas, T-Shirts.
Language of Materials
From the Collection: The majority of the material is in English. A LGBTQ Guide from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (Fall 2013-Spring 2014) and brochures in the "AIDS resources" folder are available in Spanish.
The collection is open for research.
