Awards

creating change award 2014The community of LGBTQ Higher Education Resource Professionals is comprised of a vast array of dedicated individuals committed to enriching the lives and campus climates for LGBTQ people and their allies in higher education. It is only appropriate that we are able to recognize the durable and sustainable impact that we and our colleagues have at our institutions. 

 

Last year, the Consortium community recognized Shiva Subbaraman with the Award for Intersectionality for her exceptional work and tireless commitment to helping students learn about and appreciate the many identities we possess. The Consortium community also awarded Zaneta Rago the Promising New Professional Award and Chicora Martin was given the award for Service to the Consortium. These awards, presented at Creating Change Houston, continue to be important milestones for the Consortium in its goal to recognize those who have and continue to create change.

 

This year we are proud to invite nominations for the following three awards:

 

Research & Assessment

The award for research and assessment recognizes an individual member or group for contributions that increase the body of literature related to sexuality and gender in higher education, and improves programs and services that directly impact LGBT people in higher education settings. This award acknowledges the role and importance of both research and assessment in LGBT support services in higher education, particularly related to the intersecting identities of race, class, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, ability, national origin, age, familial status, veteran status, and other emerging identities.

 

Exemplary nominees for this award:

- have contributed to further learning and development of all through publication of assessment results and/or research in juried journals
