About OutClass - Stern's LGBTQ Community Club

OutClass serves as a professional, educational and social forum for LGBTQ students and hosts a number of student events each year:
  • Corporate dinners and recruiting events with preeminent firms
  • Alumni career panels and networking events
  • Cocktail socials with other top business schools
  • Workshops on timely issues of concern to LGBTQ students

Reaching Out MBA

Stern is a proud partner of Reaching Out MBA (ROMBA), an organization that educates, inspires and connects lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) MBA students at business schools in the United States. Each year, Stern designates some exceptional LGBTQ candidates who are also receiving a merit-based scholarship as ROMBA Fellows.

Every year, Stern students attend the Reaching Out MBA Conference, an annual gathering of LGBTQ graduate business school students from all over the world. The conference provides a forum to build personal and professional networks.

Scholarship Spotlight: The Point Foundation

The Point Foundation scholarship is available to LGBTQ students and applicants who have taken on leadership roles in the LGBTQ community. It is open to all students matriculated in an accredited university in the U.S. The size of the scholarship depends on the number of scholars selected and the foundation's fund availability.

NYU LGBTQ Student Center

The NYU Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Student Center creates a welcoming environment for all University students and faculty interested in developing their understanding of LGBTQ issues. Support services, resources, programs, advocacy, training, education and consultation are provided to members of the NYU community.
