What is the RPA?

The Rensselaer Pride Alliance (RPA) exists to encourage the participation of the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute community in the promotion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, other gender and sexual minority (henceforth referred to as LGBT*), and ally intellectual and social interests, and to foster the development of understanding, appreciation, and pride in LGBT* history and culture.

Weekly Meetings

Public meetings are held weekly in the RPI Student Union, during the fall and spring semesters. For the Fall 2017 semester meetings are held in Union room 3602 at 8:30PM on Thursdays.

Who can join?

Anyone can join! Whether you’re straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or questioning – you’re welcome to come to meetings. We especially try to encourage those who might be unsure of their sexual orientation to come to a meeting.
