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 and gender 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 or during summer break.


NOTE: As of Spring 2022, office hours are held in the Student Center 132 (the Environment Room) on Tuesdays from 2-3 pm and Wednesdays from 10-11 am, though members of exec may decide to hold office hours over Zoom – please join oSTEM’s GroupMe or Discord for more information.  All information below the headline “Spring 2021 Office Hours” is outdated and does not reflect either oSTEM’s active exec board members or office hours policy.  You can also contact us by email or through the oSTEM Discord.
