Webinar: Fostering LGBTQ2S+ Inclusion in Online Learning - June 25, 2020 @ 12:00-1:45pm [EST]

This webinar is hosted by Thriving on Campus; The University of Arizona’s Institute for LGBT Studies; and MOSAIC: The National Study of Queer, Trans and Ace College Student Success, based out of the University of Iowa. 

Please join us for this webinar as we discuss how we might foster LGBTQ2S+ inclusion in online learning environments. The webinar will include six presentations offered by a group of scholars from Canada and the United States. These scholars will share their insights regarding pedagogical strategies centered around care, student-instructor learning partnerships, and how instructors might intentionally respond to the unique circumstances faced by LGBTQ2S+ students in online learning environments. ASL interpretation will be provided.

Interested participants can register here or subscribe to Thriving on Campus' YouTube channel and join live at on June 25 from 12 - 1:45. 

On-campus

The main on-campus resource for LGBTQ+ students, faculty, and staff is the LSU LGBTQ+ Project. Housed under the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the LGBTQ+ Project actively works to make Louisiana State University a safer space for all students, faculty, and staff regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. The critically important work of the LGBTQ+ Project includes organizing the Safe Space Campaign, programming events that support and advocate for LGBTQ+ students, and supporting queer student organizations. 

LSU Student Groups

There are several active LGBTQ+ student groups on campus. Those include: 

Spectrum 

Spectrum empowers and supports LSU gender and sexual minority such as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, and asexual/aromantic/agender (LGBTQIA) communities as well as their allies by providing social support, education, programming, and opportunities to participate in campus and community activism. 

Qroma

Qroma is an organization which seeks to support the campus' lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students of color through service, programming, and social outreach. This student organization hopes to address the struggles that are paired with being queer students of color on LSU's campus.

Louisiana Trans Advocates: LSU chapter 

LTA:LSU's goal is to create a safe space for trans students as well as provide support and trans specific resources for LSU Students.

Queer Graduate Student Alliance

QGSA empowers and supports LGBTQIA+ LSU graduate students through social support, education, and community activism.

OUTLaw @ LSU law school 

The mission of OUTlaw is to create a climate at the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center in which it is safe and comfortable to be openly lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or an ally (“LGBT”). OUTlaw members aim to promote education, awareness, and advocacy of LGBT issues to LSU Law students, faculty, and staff and seek to create an atmosphere of acceptance and comfort, instill justice, and combat discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
