The Institute for Sexual and Gender Minority Health and Wellbeing (ISGMH) at Northwestern University is the first university-wide institute in the country focused exclusively on research to improve the health of the sexual and gender minority (SGM) community. As one of the largest university-wide institutes at Northwestern, we are a leader in research that fosters understanding of the development and experiences of SGM individuals and improves the health and wellbeing of the SGM community. Our mission is to connect scholars from numerous disciplines with the SGM community to forge collaborations and stimulate innovative research to improve SGM health and wellbeing. We provide unique opportunities for high-level research and training for the next generation of SGM scholars while utilizing innovative modalities to disseminate knowledge widely to the SGM community, the public at large, scholars, service providers, educators, and policymakers.
