Consider Hosting for IVYQ!
IvyQ is a pan-Ivy League LGBTQ+ conference that takes place annually at one of the eight Ivy League institutions. IvyQ provides a forum for students to come together, discuss LGBTQ+ issues facing college students and young people, and prepare to become LGBTQ+ leaders in the real world. This year, the conference will take place on November 12th to the 15th at Cornell!
This is where you come in…
At this year’s conference, we are expecting upwards of 300+ students from different schools to be staying with us, attending workshops, and enjoying Cornell’s beautiful campus from Thursday night to Sunday morning. Without a place to host these students, there can be no conference! As a host, we ask that you provide a safe space for a student to stay for all three nights, and that you remain available to answer questions as they arise. (ex. where is the nearest dining hall? How can I find Bailey Hall?). You by no means have to stay with your hostee at all times. IvyQ attendees will be attending workshops on Friday at Saturday beginning at 10am, and will be going to keynote speakers and social events at night.
Please note that to be eligible to host, you must be living in a university-owned property. To host, please follow this link:
If you are interested in the conference itself, registration will be open until November 1st!
