Who we are

SAGA is a peer education group of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning (LGBT), and straight students who support each other and educate the campus. We meet weekly for fellowship and learning. Multiple events throughout the year seek to foster a more welcoming and educated community.

Get involved

SAGA warmly welcomes new members. SAGA has opportunities for students to be members, educators, and leaders. Contact Dan Vandersteen (photo | email) or Becki Levad (photo | email) to learn more.

  • You are Loved Campaign
  • LGBT Panel
  • SAGA Chapel

If you are LGBT+ or straight at Calvin...

Calvin seeks to be a safe place for LGBT+ and straight students to grow and learn. We affirm that a student can be Christian and LGBT+. It is our mission that all students will find a place at the college where they can be shaped for work and worship in God's kingdom. SAGA works to foster a climate where that is possible and every student can learn about sexuality, gender, and relationships in light of their faith.
