People make Community, but Community supports People
WashU is home to thousands of diverse individuals. People who look like you and think like you and people who do neither. All these people make the WashU community and WashU works to support each individual. Learn more about resources central to your identity.
There are many resources at WashU that exist to create space for you to navigate your identities, question openly and be your authentic self.
