From the Midwest BLGTA College Conference:
Campus climate surveys over the past few years have provided student affairs professionals with a glimpse into the lived experiences of Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Queer students in the college environment.
Unfortunately, this data has indicated that many (a range of about 1/3-2/3) of LGBTQ identified college students have experienced harassment on their campus and/or fear for their safety (Rankin, 2005; 2003).
If you are looking for ways to bring a deeper understanding and appreciation of difference and all members of your campus community, we encourage you to send your residential assistants, professional staff, graduate and undergraduate students to the 20th annualMidwest Bisexual Lesbian Gay Transgender Ally College Conference (MBLGTACC), hosted by Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa on February 10-12, 2012.
MBLGTACC is the longest and largest regional conference aimed to foster leadership skills and community for not only college-age Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer and Ally (LGBTQA) students, but individuals of all ages and identities. Participation in the conference provides an opportunity to gain valuable skills that empower participants to network across universities, build collaborative relationships, and create their own path in the fight for LGBTQA equality, visibility, and community. We hope that you will encourage members of your campus community to attend and bring the spirit of the conference back to your campus!
