Queer-spectrum and trans-spectrum faculty often experience hostile and uninviting institutional climates. These experiences may lead lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) faculty to leave their institutions. This workshop discusses how region, climate, and other factors impact queer/trans spectrum faculty, and how institutions can help develop more supportive environments. 

Facilitator: Jason Garvey, Assistant Professor of Higher Education and Student Affairs, University of Vermont
