Event Description

How the Make-Up of the LGBTQ College Student Population Is Changing and How to Address Their Needs

More than ever, college students do not fit --- or want to fit --- into boxes for their complex, intersectional identities. A majority of non-cisgender and non-heterosexual students today identify as non-binary; that is, they do not see themselves as male or female, straight or lesbian/gay. How is your institution addressing the needs of this growing population?

Keeping up with the evolving language, identities and necessary practices can be challenging and rewarding! And in today’s world, it really is critical. Grasping how students choose to identify outside of binaries is vital to how you can best support their wellness and safety on campus, and be confident that you can provide a welcoming and inclusive campus environment for ALL of your students.

Your institution has an opportunity and a responsibility to put practices in place that serve, protect, and ultimately retain all students. In this webinar, expert speaker Genny Beemyn will position you to do that across the wide variety of sexual and gender identities and help your institution address the growing needs of the LGBTQ population.
