Making Your Campus Safe & Inclusive to LGBTQ+ Students- Jeremy Wallace
October 26, 2021
11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Virtual via Zoom
Campus safety matters to all students, but is particularly critical for those who identify as a LGBTQ+ individual. An unfortunate reality is that instances of discrimination and violence against trans individuals are terrifyingly commonplace. In fact, a recent study of 27 Institutions of Higher Education (IHE) (AAU, 2015) found that 28% of students who considered themselves to be transgender, gender queer, gender non-conforming, or not listed had experienced sexual violence since coming to college.
In this keynote, Transgender Advocate and Speaker Jeremy Wallace equips college and university students, staff, and faculty with insightful ideas to encourage an atmosphere of inclusion and safety. The results of these efforts have the capacity to impact not only present LGBTQ+ students, but future students through recruiting efforts. Jeremy will play a vital role in helping your IHE shift from a reactive stance to diversity issues as they arise, to solidifying proactive diversity education policies that create a welcoming campus community for all.
