Nominate Colleagues for the 2017 Consortium Awards

Colleagues,

The 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. It is only appropriate that we are able to recognize the durable and sustainable impact that we all have at our institutions. 

Last year, the Consortium community recognized Dr. Debbie Bazarsky, Dr. Cara Miller, and Nicholas Shigeru Sakurai for their achievements in the work. These awards, presented at Creating Change in Chicago, continue to mark milestones for the Consortium in its goal to recognize those who have, and who continue to, create change. 

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

The Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals Endorses Congressman Hank Johnson’s Inclusive Campuses Act


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DATE September 30, 2016


The Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals  enthusiastically endorses H.R. 6164, the Inclusive Campuses Act of 2016, which was introduced this week by U.S. Representative Hank Johnson (GA-4). If passed into law, this measure would promote inclusion and empowerment of LGBTQ people at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and other minority serving institutions. This federal legislation would take a critical step forward by authorizing Title III education funds to establish campus resource centers that provide support for LGBTQ students as well as programming resources and education about LGBTQ people to the entire campus community at our nation’s HBCUs and other minority serving institutions. “The Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals was happy to work with Rep. Johnson on the drafting of this legislation and we look forward to enhancing our own membership support for the work of LGBTQ campus resource centers at HBCUs and other minority serving institutions,” said D.A. Dirks, Co-Chair of the Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals.

Supporting Our Black LGBTQ+ Colleagues


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

July 8th, 2016


New York, N.Y. The Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals find ourselves yet again confronted with deep sadness, anger, and unrest due to the loss of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile and others as result of police brutality and structural racism. As we mourn and honor the humanity of these young, Black men we acknowledge that the incessant and egregious attacks against Black people profoundly impacts not only our respective campuses, but our Black colleagues and communities across the country. It is imperative that we are mindful and intentional of how we support our Black LGBTQ+ colleagues as they continue to advocate for equity on our campuses.

We would like to offer several spaces for colleagues to grieve, process, and be in community together. Next Tuesday, July 12, 2016, from 3:30pm-5:30pm EST we will host a conference call for Black LGBTQ+ colleagues to share space. You can register for this call at the following link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/6203681374719435266.

We will also offer additional spaces for colleagues to connect next week and will provide more information in the days to come.
