The Queer Initiative Scholars (QI) program assists students in the LGBTQIA+ community through the educational system and achieving their career and educational goals while also offering benefits such as financial aid assistance, scholarship assistance, and other services.

Students in the LGBTQIA+ community and allies can come together to socialize and have conversations on building a safe campus for the student body at RHC.

QI Scholars program also holds a support group, “Cuz, I Love You,” for students in the LGBTQIA+ community via Zoom every Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Also, on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, QI will host the first ever “Queer Talks” in the Student Union (SU) building Room 201, the Student Lounge.
