painted rainbow colors

The MSU Consortium for Sexual and Gender Minority Health is an initiative within the College of Social Science that is housed in the School of Social Work. The consortium includes a large group of social scientists across the College who study SGM physical or mental health with a focus on minority stress, the life course perspective, and intersectionality, from a social ecological approach.

The work of the SGM Consortium centers on the development and support of interdisciplinary research teams, mentoring of faculty and graduate students, engagement with community stakeholders, and leading SGM health training initiatives.

The consortium will serve as a coordinating resource for social science research in SGM health and will establish the College of Social Science at MSU as a national leader in SGM health research.
