oSTEM stands for Out in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. oSTEM's purpose is to create a community for LGBTQ students in STEM fields at KU. The main goals of this community are to increase visibility of LGBTQ students within STEM fields, building a network for LGBTQ students with both industrial and academic intentions, as well as create a forum within STEM fields for LGBTQ students to meet, work together, and build lasting friendships. oSTEM is a national organization with chapters in universities across the country including Columbia University, The Ohio State University, University of California Berkeley, and Stanford University.


  • To educate, empower, and engage a diverse community,
  • To identify, address, and advocate for the needs of LGBTQA students in the STEM fields,
  • And we fulfill these needs through mentorship connections, networking opportunities, strategic collaborations, and professional/leadership development.


We envision a world where all members of the STEM community can pursue their work in a safe and supportive environment that celebrates their contributions and differences.
