Description

LGBTQ+ identifying students at any institution must daily navigate climates that range from dismissive to hostile toward their identities and experiences. This can significantly impede students’ ability to succeed academically and to engage meaningfully with their educational community. Catholic institutions have unique opportunities to support LGBTQ+ students, to connect them with resources and services, and to provide leadership development. This session will outline how one Catholic university has developed and grown a program of LGBTQ+ support that is rooted in its Catholic and Marianist values and teachings. It will include examples of structures, services, education, programming, leadership development, and training and will close with time devoted to questions and discussion.
