Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer+ Resources
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, and queer (LGBTQ+) Resources serves to provide resources for and act as a liaison to campus centers and the staff and faculty that serve LGBTQ+ students at UW System universities and colleges. LGBTQ+ Resources also provides information for employees of the UW System on policies that affect LGBTQ+ staff and faculty. This work is done through an intersectional and social justice lens. LGBTQ+ people have multiple identities that include race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, religion, and dis/ability status, which means that work for inclusion of LGBTQ+ communities must also combat oppression in all of its interrelated forms (i.e. sexism, racism, classism, trans/bi/homophobia). The work that is done on campuses by staff and faculty that serve LGBTQ+ students to improve climate and to be inclusive and socially just helps to promote student retention, graduation, and academic success.
