Statement on White House Rescinding Dear Colleague Letter on Trans Inclusion

The Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals condemns the action taken by the Trump administration in denying the civil rights of transgender students across the nation. The Trump administration recently rescinded the "Dear Colleague Letter on Transgender Students" that gave guidance to educational institutions on how to support trans students. The Consortium and its members who staff LGBTQ campus centers work to empower, build safety for, and affirm trans, genderqueer, and non-binary students, staff, and faculty on college and university campuses, and we will continue to do so.

We call on colleges and universities to legally encode in their institutional policies the rights that the Trump administration is no longer protecting. Furthermore, the Consortium urges institutions to continue to be bold and steadfast in their support for trans, genderqueer, and non-binary students, staff, and faculty: it is time that institutions rise up and support their trans students. Please refer to the resources linked below:

The Consortium Executive Board recognizes this is a dire landscape for trans students and professionals, and we see you and value the lives and labor of trans people in this work. We are here to provide assistance and guidance, and please reach out to us and colleagues as support and resources in this critical campus equity work.

-The Consortium Executive Board

Summer 2017 Consortium Institute Call for Proposals

Would you like to bring the Consortium board to your campus? 

We are pleased to announce the Consortium's invitation for proposals to host the 2017 Day-Long Summer Institute! Your campus could host a professional development opportunity for your region. Since 2009, the Consortium board has hosted a summer planning retreat at different campuses across the U.S. including University at Albany-SUNY and University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Before the retreat, we have hosted a Consortium Summer Institute with the host institution. Since the retreat travels, we would like to take the retreat and institute to a new location where it can benefit our members. 

In the attached document (also found online at http://bit.ly/2017instituteProposal), you will find descriptions of the Institute and the partnership between the hosting institution and the Consortium. The detailed proposal form (pgs 3 - 7 of the attachment) includes an opportunity to outline proposed dates, venue(s), logistics and much more.

Consider inviting the Consortium board to your campus in Summer 2017. The deadline for proposals is Friday, December 16, 2016! What questions do you have?

The Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals Endorses Congressman Hank Johnson’s Inclusive Campuses Act


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DATE September 30, 2016


The Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals  enthusiastically endorses H.R. 6164, the Inclusive Campuses Act of 2016, which was introduced this week by U.S. Representative Hank Johnson (GA-4). If passed into law, this measure would promote inclusion and empowerment of LGBTQ people at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and other minority serving institutions. This federal legislation would take a critical step forward by authorizing Title III education funds to establish campus resource centers that provide support for LGBTQ students as well as programming resources and education about LGBTQ people to the entire campus community at our nation’s HBCUs and other minority serving institutions. “The Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals was happy to work with Rep. Johnson on the drafting of this legislation and we look forward to enhancing our own membership support for the work of LGBTQ campus resource centers at HBCUs and other minority serving institutions,” said D.A. Dirks, Co-Chair of the Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals.
