Since 1977, G.L.A.S.S. has provided a safe haven for queer students and their allies to question, explore, and discover all aspects of their sexual orientation and gender identity while building a sense of unity with one another. Collectively and individually members of G.L.A.S.S. strive to breed tolerance and acceptance for misunderstood sexual and gender minorities in a notoriously diverse campus community. G.L.A.S.S. functions as an educational, social, and political student organization.
