Abstract/Description

Education in the Marianist family spirit means learning and growing together, building intentional and inclusive community, and valuing the dignity of all people. Although there are notable barriers to the full inclusion of LGBTQ+ people in our community, a growing number of staff and faculty are fully out in their student-facing roles on campus. By integrating their identities into their work, LGBTQ+ educators are expanding the ways in which they are able to support student well-being and success. In this session, a panel of staff and faculty will reflect on their experiences with bringing their full identities (inclusive of but not limited to identifying as LGBTQ+) into their work with students.

Goals for Attendees

Learn about experiences and perspectives from LGBTQ+ employees at the University of Dayton; Consider the transformative potential of bringing our full selves into our interactions with students; Recognize barriers to integrating LGBTQ+ identity into student-facing work on campus
