The Consortium of LGBT Higher Education Resource Professionals is participating for the first time in Give OUT Day, the only national day of giving for the LGBTQ community.
Our goal this year is $7,500 to help support pipeline initiatives and our summer institute collaboration with NBJC at North Carolina Central University where our family needs extra support in this climate. We know we can do it, but only with your help!
Your gift helps us continue to fight for better campus climate, trans and non-binary inclusion in Title IX, restroom justice, elevating trans and queer voices of color, supporting staff in the profession, and more. Thank you again for believing in us.
Thank you again for your support of our work. We couldn’t do it without you.

Statement on White House Rescinding Dear Colleague Letter on Trans Inclusion
The Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals condemns the action taken by the Trump administration in denying the civil rights of transgender students across the nation. The Trump administration recently rescinded the "Dear Colleague Letter on Transgender Students" that gave guidance to educational institutions on how to support trans students. The Consortium and its members who staff LGBTQ campus centers work to empower, build safety for, and affirm trans, genderqueer, and non-binary students, staff, and faculty on college and university campuses, and we will continue to do so.
We call on colleges and universities to legally encode in their institutional policies the rights that the Trump administration is no longer protecting. Furthermore, the Consortium urges institutions to continue to be bold and steadfast in their support for trans, genderqueer, and non-binary students, staff, and faculty: it is time that institutions rise up and support their trans students. Please refer to the resources linked below:
The Consortium Executive Board recognizes this is a dire landscape for trans students and professionals, and we see you and value the lives and labor of trans people in this work. We are here to provide assistance and guidance, and please reach out to us and colleagues as support and resources in this critical campus equity work.
