Transgender awareness and support the focus of panel discussion
Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Understanding transgender concerns in higher education will be the focus of, “Transgender Awareness and Support,” a panel discussion to be held on Tuesday, Oct 29, at 3:30 p.m. at the Horizon Room East in the Williams Center.

Members of the campus community will gain perspective into how they can be supportive of trans-identified and gender-queer students by becoming familiar with key terms and concepts, learning about current trends and best practices in higher education, and becoming aware of what has been done on campus to promote gender inclusivity and learn about what additional steps could be taken.

Presenters on the panel include: Chief Diversity Officer Bill Boerner, Associate Professor Jennifer Hildebrand of the Department of History, and Visiting Assistant Professor Jeffry Iovannone of Interdisciplinary Studies.

The panel discussion is the second of the three-part Diversity as Personal Responsibility lecture series sponsored in Fall 2013 by the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and the Professional Development Center. The event is free.
