Skagit Valley College logo


At Skagit Valley College, we respect and welcome all persons, regardless of their perceived or actual sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. Our commitment is that all students, staff, and faculty should feel safe, welcome, and supported on our campus. We reject homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, and heterosexism  and support the achievement of our LGBTQ students. Through diversity dialogues and safe zone trainings, we seek to provide educational oppotunities for students, staff and faculty. We recognize that difference, in all its forms including sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression, enriches our campus community and enhances the learning environment for all.

SVC continues to actively evaluate, update, and add to our programming, policies, and resources for LGBTQ individuals and allies based on best practices.  If you have questions or have suggestions, please contact Yadira Rosales, Director Multicultural Student Services at
