Expanding the Circle Summer Institute
Public Programs and Performances WKS 117 1.00
In order to advance pluralism, acknowledge a scholarly area of investigation, and deepen learning in higher education, we need to expand our circle of inclusion and broaden our definition of diversity by increasing lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) studies. The annual Expanding the Circle Summer Institute: Advancing LGBTQ Initiatives in Higher Education, from the Classroom to the Campus Quad is designed for academic deans and administrators, campus counselors, faculty and faculty development specialists, student affairs professionals, and students. Goals of the Summer Institute will include advancing LGBTQ initiatives, enriching the quality of education and scholarship for all members of our campus communities by creating an inclusive environment for LGBTQ students and studies.
