GLBT Advocate

GLBT Advocate Program

Show your support on campus through the GLBT Advocate Program

The GLBT community is incredibly diverse, and understandings about gender and sexual orientation are constantly evolving. Consequently, there is always new information to get out to the campus community and always more information than we could ever cover in one workshop. Thus, the GLBT Center launched a new initiative – the GLBT Advocate Program — during the 2015-2016 academic year.

The GLBT Advocate Program is a continuing education and engagement program for faculty and staff designed to provide participants with ongoing opportunities to learn and show their support as allies and advocates of the GLBT community.  Through taking an intersectional look at the incredibly diverse GLBT community, participants gain a stronger understanding of gender and sexuality, beyond our Project SAFE and Trans 101 workshop. The Lunch & Learn Series is designed to increase the skill sets of faculty and staff in creating an inclusive classroom, work environment or campus community, recognizing the array of peer support networks to aid and provide resources as they work towards inclusion and diversity, increasing their knowledge of advocacy techniques which they may employ in their work towards inclusion, and gain a sense of community with fellow advocates at NC State.  To sign up to participate in the GLBT Advocate Program, click here.
