About Us

Welcome to the Chancellor's Advisory Committee on Queer Issues (CACQI) website. We are excited you're interested in connecting with our committee and the work we do to affirm the experiences of our LGBTQ+ community at UC Merced.


CACQI was formed in June 2015 to identify and address issues faced by UC Merced's LGBTQ+ community. We are a collective of undergraduate and graduate students and faculty and staff members who work toward the affirmation of our LGBTQ+ lived experiences and an overall campus inclusion and acceptance for the LGBTQ+ community.
