Our community

We’re proud of the vibrant Herts LGBT+ community. We invited staff and alumni to share their journeys and achievements, and to tell us how they’ve felt supported by Herts throughout their study and work.

If you’d like us to feature you in an LGBT+ community case study, please get in touch.
