ICE and Creating Change 2016

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

January 14th, 2016

New York, N.Y. -  We, The Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals, were disappointed to learn that the Creating Change conference initially allowed ICE to enter the conference space as an attendee and presenter.  For many of us, this space has been held as sacred and inclusive, but ICE's inclusion in the conference has shown us otherwise.  The Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals stands in solidarity with undocumented communities and attendees at this conference, including the students and staff that we bring to our conference and support on our campuses.


We support the demands of Familia: Trans Queer Liberation Movement as presented to the National LGBTQ Task Force (http://familiatqlm.org/iceoutofcc/)

  • Include a “Fighting Against Deportations” plenary with trans immigrant leaders;

  • Make space available on the agenda to include more LGBTQ immigrant rights workshops; and,

  • Ensure all LGBTQ undocumented immigrant attendees are supported financially throughout the conference (meals, lodging, registration, travel, etc).

We also encourage our membership to attend UndocuPeers: Liberating Campus Climate for LGBTQ Immigrant Youth #UndocuTrack (Workshop Session 8 · All Audiences)

The combined vision and mission of the Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals is to achieve higher education environments in which lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students, faculty, staff, administrators, and alumni have equity in every respect. Our goals are to support colleagues and develop curriculum to professionally enhance this work; to seek climate improvement on campuses; and to advocate for policy change, program development, and establishment of LGBT Offices/Centers.

The American College Health Association (ACHA), Coalition of Allies for LGBT Health, and the Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals release Trans-Inclusive College Health Programs Recommendations


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

October, 2015

New York, N.Y. As college health programs work to support the overall goals of their institutions, providing trans-inclusive healthcare will enhance academic success for transgender students and comply with Title IX guidelines requiring educational institutions to not discriminate on the basis of gender identity in the provision of services. Likewise, under the Affordable Care Act, institutions are increasing emphasis on non-discrimination in healthcare on the basis of gender identity. The following document details recommendations designed to create climates and environments in college health that are inclusive and affirming of transgender, gender nonconforming, genderqueer, and similarly self-identified students. Students’ gender expressions span a wide spectrum. The following recommendations can help mitigate barriers that trans students face when accessing mental health, physical health and preventative services on campus. The Consortium is grateful to partner with ACHA to release this document.


The document can be downloaded at ACHA.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

October 10, 2015

 

New York, N.Y. – The Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals is seeking proposals for the Consortium Summer 2016 Institute and Board Retreat. Since 2009, the Consortium board has hosted a summer planning retreat at different campuses across the U.S. including University of Wisconsin-Madison and University at Albany-SUNY. As a benefit to the retreat site, we have also hosted a day-long summer institute for higher education professionals.

We are pleased to announce the Consortium’s invitation for proposals to host the 2016 Summer Board Retreat and Day-Long Institute! Your campus could host a professional development opportunity for your region. Since the retreat travels, we would like to take the retreat and institute to a new location where it can benefit our members.

In the 2016 Institute Proposal document, you will find descriptions of the Institute, the Retreat and the partnership between the hosting institution and the Consortium. The detailed proposal form (pgs 4 - 7 of the attachment) includes an opportunity to outline proposed dates, venue(s), logistics and much more. Consider inviting the Consortium board to your campus in Summer 2016. The deadline for proposals is Monday, November 23, 2015! What questions do you have? Please contact D.A. Dirks and Matt Bruno for questions or more information.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

August 5, 2015

 

New York, N.Y. – The Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals has joined with other organizations requesting the addition of optional demographic questions related to gender identity and sexual orientation to the Common Application. A full copy of the letter sent via electronic communication, and the full list of the 24 National Organizations who have signed onto the letter,  is available online at: lgbtcampus.memberclicks.net/assets/lettertocommonapp.pdf


The Common Application form evaluates prospective students for admission at over 500 colleges, universities and other organizations in 47 states and the District of Columbia and internationally. A growing numberof colleges and universities are asking students their gender identity and sexual orientation on admissions forms, either by having questions on their own application materials or by adding supplemental questions to their Common Application.
