QSP2 is a group created to represent gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, questioning (LGBTQ) Social Work students and their allies. The group’s purpose is to offer social activities, advocate for LGBTQ rights and services in the School of Social Policy & Practice, and to serve as a group within the University-wide network of LGBTQ organizations at Penn. QSP2 has been instrumental in infusing LGBTQ content into the Social Work curricula, building coalitions with other organizations, increasing visibility of LGBTQ Social Workers at Penn, and providing emotional and social support to the LGBTQ community at Penn. Meetings are held regularly.
