Chancellor's LGBT Task Force


The function of the Chancellorís Task Force on LGBT* Issues is to offer advice and assistance to the Chancellor, Provost, and Equal Opportunity Officer, ensuring that the voices of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender* (LGBT*) employees and students are heard and that equal opportunities for LGBT* employees and students continue to be carried out as fundamental responsibilities of the institution and are carried out appropriately in all aspects of employment and student life. A key role of this committee will be to advise university officials and students on the educational programs, services, and policies needed to achieve equal opportunities. The committee shall monitor implementation of the responses to the LGBT* Task Force recommendations and continue to assess the changing needs of the campus LGBT* population. .

The task force meets on a monthly basis. The task force also provides support for the Safe Zone Program. The program provides a safe, comfortable setting for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender* community to speak freely and openly about issues they experience.
