Office Hours


The oSTEM at Colorado School of Mines Office Hour Program seeks to provide support and guidance to students who are looking for a listening ear in the LGBTQ+ community.

Participants are encouraged to ask questions, challenge stereotypes and gain self-confidence. The program provides not only sexual identity support to students, but also academic, career, community and personal guidance. Allies and all members of the LGBTQ+ community, including questioning individuals, are encouraged to participate.

Office hours will not be held on days off from school. Please check the oSTEM calendar for any changes or cancellations.
