CFAES forms LGBTQQI group

We’re pleased to announce that CFAES has created the LGBTQQI and Allies Affinity Group. This group is an informal organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning and intersex staff and faculty and their allies in the college. It exists to provide:

  • networking events through the year;
  • opportunities for informational learning opportunities through seminars and workshops;
  • networking and career development; and
  • socializing with peers and colleagues.

We seek to promote the inclusion and well-being of our LGBTQQI employee community and to establish a network for sharing resources on campus.

If you’re interested in being a part of this network, subscribe to our listserve at Please put “subscribe” in the subject line. The listserve will be used to share information on upcoming events of interest on campus and in surrounding communities as well as providing notice of our events.

Our first event will occur early fall semester.—Kathy Lechman, Ryan Schmiesing
