PRISM: LGBTQIA Peer Counseling & Mentoring

PRISM: LGBTQIA Peer Counseling & Mentoring is both online and in-person. This program is only for Cal Poly students.

How it works:

  • The Peer Counselors page will tell you about each of our PRISM Team members.
  • They can be contacted through the email address below each of their bios. 
  • You can contact whichever member of the team that you feel is a best fit for you to talk to.
  • You can continue to talk with them in email format, or you can arrange to meet in person at a location agreed upon by both of you.

Counseling and mentoring is year-round, and includes school breaks.

This service is for students who identify as LGBTQIA, questioning, or students who have LGBTQIA or questioning friends, roommates, or familiy members and want to seek advice.

Monthly Online Chats

Each month the PRISM team has an online chat at

Topics change monthly. All chats are confidential and facilitated by PRISM Peer Counselors.During the chat, you can create your own anonymous name and don't have to "talk". You might get a lot out of it from just watching at the conversation and "meeting" our peer counselors.

PRISM Office Hours

PRISM Team Members hold their office hours in the Pride Center (University Union, Room 209). We encourage you to come by and see them if you need to speak with a counselor.
