LGBTQ Campus Roadmap 2014 Webinar: 5 Critical Strategies to Becoming an LGBTQ-Friendly Community

Brought to you by the United Front Multicultural Center & The Center for Educational Excellence

Tuesday, October 8 from 10:45 am – 12:30 pm in the Jenny Craig Pavilion Warren Hospitality Suite 

LGBTQ people have always been a part the academic tapestry and diversity of colleges and universities – as students, staff, faculty, administrators, alumnae, and community volunteers.While the availability of LGBTQ campus services and programs has improved, far fewer institutions still offer them. Student success and retention depends on your school’s specific support and services offerings (or lack of offerings!).

Every year Campus Pride rates the 25 most LGBT-friendly colleges and universities. The 2013 list will be published in August/September in tandem with the Huffington Post, recognizing campuses that offer a diverse array of LGBT-inclusive policies, programs and practices.

Join our presenter, co-founder and executive director of Campus Pride, as he reviews 5 common strategies that these Top 25 campuses have in place. Take away recommendations that your institution can adapt and apply to improve campus climate and LGBTQ life within your campus community.  You will also take away resources to help support the LGBTQ student experience andbuild more inclusive, friendly communities around LGBTQ issues.
