Recap from the Chicago Conference
I just wanted to provide a overview of the topics that we discussed during the Chicago conference at our CoP meeting.
Topics of Discussion
Gender Neutral Bathrooms
There was a discussion about the process of installing gender-neutral bathrooms in our student unions. The discussion included how different campuses installed them, what they called them, and the processes, that student union professionals had to go through to get them done. *If you were not at the Chicago conference, and you work in a Union that has these types of facilities... please feel free to post on this forum about how your particular Union created these spaces.
One of the other main topics that was discussed was about reaching out to some of our more seasoned LGBT professionals to hear their stories in order to help us establish where we want to go as a community as well as where we want ACUI to go in the future with regards to LGBT issues.
Finally, we also talked about how we communicate as a community. I am hoping that we can really utilize this forum to communicate with each other throughout the year. If you have any other thoughts on communication resources please let me know.
If anyone else that was at the meeting wants to add anything to this post please do!
We have a gender netural restroom in our new Campus Center at USC. During the programming phase of the building we heard that was important to students so it was included.
The Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles has just released a new You Tube Video that I thought folks might enjoy.....(I used to serve on their Board of Directors)
