Welcome to the Monterey Peninsula College Resource page for individuals who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, plus any number of other gender identities (including non-binary gender identities, omnigender identities, and non-gender identities), alternative sexes and/or alternative sexual identities that are not included in these few letters (LGBTQIA+).This site has been created to provide valuable information, resources and support structures to all students, faculty and staff at MPC.

MPC has a commitment to equity and inclusion for students, faculty and staff members who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, and asexual .The MPC College resolution as an open access institution makes specific reference to foster student learning achievement within its diverse community by providing a welcoming and safe environment for students, faculty and staff regardless of age, ancestry, citizenship status, color, disability, economic status, ethnic group identification, gender, marital status, medical condition, national origin, parental status, race, religion, sexual orientation, veteran status, or any legally protected characteristic.

This portion of our website has been created in support of California Education Code Section 66271.2 which indicates that the Governing Board of California Community Colleges has requested that each community college district designate an employee at each college as a point of contact for the needs of LGBTQIA faculty, staff, and students. In addition, “at a minimum, the name and contact information of the designated employee shall be published on the internet web site for the respective campus and shall be included in any printed and internet-based campus directories."
