LGBTQIA+ Faculty+Staff Collective
February 28 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Are you interested in supporting LGBTQIA+ students, faculty, and staff at City Tech? Would you like to be part of creating a more welcoming and inclusive environment for all gender identities and expressions and sexualities? If so, you are invited to participate in a meaningful and rewarding college-level service opportunity – an official LGBTQIA+ Faculty+Staff Collective. We are looking for anyone who would like to be part of this work at City Tech, whether you are a member of the LGBTQIA+ community or an ally. In 2022-2023,
City Tech was awarded $40,000 to serve City Tech’s LGBTQIA+ students, faculty, and staff, and we have been invited to apply for support in subsequent years as well. The funding comes from CUNY’s LGBTQIA+ Consortium (with support from LaGuardia Community College and the New York City Council and the Council’s LGBTQIA+ Caucus). The LGBTQIA+ Consortium is a CUNY-wide group that facilitates the archiving of LGBTQIA+ history across New York and supports LGBTQIA+ training, education, and programming. With this funding, City Tech is now officially a member of the Consortium and will be using the money on a range of programming and initiatives, including:
- Eleven student internships
- LGBTQIA+ Student Infrastructure Initiative
- A Conversation on Gender in the Classroom Workshop for Faculty
- LGBTQIA+ Library Collection Development
- Gender & Sexuality Studies Program Building
- LGBTQIA+ Literary Arts Festival speaker
- Meet The Pros with Rob Sanders and Jamey Christoph, the creative team behind Stonewall A Building. an Uprising. a Revolution
- Stop the Hate: Safer Space Training
City Tech already offers one of the few Academic Minors in the CUNY system focusing on an interdisciplinary approach to Gender & Sexuality Studies, and there is so much possibility for City Tech to be a welcoming home for LGBTQIA+ community! If you are interested in being part of any aspect of this initiative, please consider joining the LGBTQIA+ Faculty+Staff Collective.
We will be having an informational meeting in Faculty Commons, 300 Jay Street, Namm Hall N227, on Tuesday, February 28th at 1:00 p.m.
