The LGBTQ Center and The Graduate School partner to provide opportunities and resources for our LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, and Asexual)-identified graduate students to aid in their academic success and to build community. Some of these include:
- Graduate Student Speaker Series
- Graduate and Professional students have the opportunity to share their research. Past presentations include: “Traces of Lesbianism in Contemporary Mexican Literature”, “Couple Therapy with LGB Couples – Theoretical & Empirical Considerations for Affirming and Sensitive Therapy”, and “Who’s Looking? Surveillance in Gay Dating Apps”.
- Graduate and Professional Social Hour-and-a-half (GP-SHAH)
- SafeZone Training
