2013-14 Year Highlights
We’ve been active and engaged in raising visibility of LGBT+ communities on the UWM campus! The 2013-14 academic year was filled with accomplishments including the expansion of the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee for LGBT+ Advocacy membership to include representation across the campus community in alignment with committee purpose; further progress on moving toward adoption of a campus wide Inclusive Facilities policy; and exploration of a Preferred Name (Name In Use) policy and practice
(Gender) Inclusive Housing
UW-Milwaukee University Housing is excited to announce that for students who will begin living with us in Fall 2013, we have received university approval to implement an Inclusive Housing policy, which will provide us with greater flexibility in assigning students to living spaces that meet their needs. Inclusive Housing offers an inviting, welcoming space for students who self-select and self-identify as gender non-conforming or who have other cultural or identity considerations related to living in the residence halls at UW-Milwaukee and students who identify as allies.
We are still looking for volunteers for the Trans* Commission, a sub-group of the LGBT+ Advisory Committee. Their charge is to create equity, access, and an inclusive environment for people of all genders through education, advocacy and institutional change. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact Co-Chairs of the LGBT+ Committee: Jen Murray or Katie Rose.
