We are huge fans of the folks on college campuses who dedicate themselves to supporting queer and trans college students as advisors, student support service staff or by way of “other duties as assigned.”
The work performed by these individuals is often thankless or beyond their job description but plays a huge part in creating affirming spaces and experiences for queer and trans college students. We want to recognize this work and hold space for these roles who often attend the conference with their student groups.
Content in the Advisor Track will focus on:
Tools to support advisors, higher education practitioners and other roles that support college students carry out their vital work
Aiding advisors and practitioners in navigating complex campus environments and overcoming workplace barriers, burnout and other hardships of their positions
Showcasing innovative and groundbreaking scholarship, research, programming and other initiatives that contribute to a culture of higher education in which sexuality and gender diversity is celebrated
We'll host a social for advisors, higher ed pros, graduate students, and others who work with, in, and on behalf of students and institutions. More information later this summer.
This year's advisor programming is made possible by the integral relationship between MBLGTACC and the Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals. The Consortium is an organization that envisions higher education environments where LGBTQ people, inclusive of all our intersecting identities, are fully liberated.
