Transgender Students 2015:  Strategies for Serving and Supporting

Sponsored by the Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion

November 19, 2014, 1:00-3:00 p.m.

Morris University Center, Maple Dogwood Room

 

Strides have been made in understanding concerns relevant to lesbian, gay, and bisexual college students.  However, it could be argued that higher education is just beginning to grasp the needs of a growing transgender and other gender-nonconforming student population on today’s campuses. 

 

SIUE has an opportunity and responsibility to put practices in place that serve, protect, and ultimately retain all students, and this special population is no exception. 

 

Join our expert presenters, Shane Windmeyer, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Campus Pride and author Genny Beemyn as they review specific strategies and best practices for making our campus community an environment that actively supports this unique population.

Participants will:

  • Gain an understanding of the current demographics and diverse experiences of the transgender and other gender nonconforming student population.

  • Learn how transgender and other gender nonconforming college students have faced discriination in campus housing, facilities, health services, student activities, athletics, and admissions.

  • Identify ways to address this discriination and hear about best practices for meeting the needs of transgender and other gender nonconformaing students on our campus.

  • Receive valuable resources and information about new research on the experiences and needs of transgender and other gender nonconforming college students that can be used within our campus community.  

This webinar will be followed by a live question and answer session with the presenters. 

 After attending this webinar, each participant will receive a printed certificate of completion.

OCCUPYING THE ACADEMY -- JUST HOW IMPORTANT IS DIVERSITY WORK IN HIGHER EDUCATION

Sponsored by the Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion

Date and Time: To be arranged
Location: Provost's Conference Room,

3rd Floor Rendleman Hall

"This webinar will review the work in the recently published Occupying the Academy: Just How Important is Diversity Work in Higher Education? This work is organized as an edited volume of Critical Race Theory-informed institutional case studies written by U.S.-based public higher education "equity/diversity workers" at Chief Diversity Officer, Mid-Level Administrator, Faculty, and other institutional levels, working across student, academic, administrative, and other institutional locations. [...]

This webinar will particularly benefit equity/diversity workers (and related constituents/stakeholders) who have experienced challenges in their work and/or are concerned about their local or the national climate for diversity work in especially public higher education. The key objective of this webinar is to identify efficacious strategies for responding to common challenges faced by higher education equity/diversity workers that are supported by the kinds of empirical evidence purported to drive the academy."
