The mission of KAMP is to provide support to students who identify as LGBTQ+.  The program’s focus is to enhance LGBTQ+ students’ overall college experience and allow them the opportunity to connect with LGBTQ+ identified alumni, faculty, and staff; foster in students skills that will serve them personally and professionally; and cultivate dialogue about their personal lives and being their authentic selves.


  • To foster mentoring relationships between students and faculty/staff/alumni that offer support, guidance and resources to LGBTQ+-identified students at Swarthmore College
  • To expose students to the diverse lives of LGBTQ+ members of the Swarthmore College community who have bridged the gap between education and career
  • To advance the academic, interpersonal, social, and professional success of Swarthmore College students who identify as LGBTQ+
  • To provide helpful resources to students as they explore issues related to identity
  • To help connect LGBTQ+ students to the larger LGBTQ+ community, both at Swarthmore College and beyond
  • To provide LGBTQ+ faculty, staff, and alumni an opportunity to further students' development outside of the classroom
