LGBTQ Student Panelists
LGBTQ Student Panel volunteers help to facilitate dialogue and create opportunities for understanding. The panel’s focus is on the experiences of gender and sexual minorities, diversity and inclusion, and the importance of ally advocacy. Each panel consists of three to five students who are willing to share their experiences as members of the LGBTQ community in a respectful and supportive environment. Panels are available for classrooms, clubs, organizations, and residence halls, as well as Safe Zone and Pirate Ally training. A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 is required for this position. Interviews will be conducted in November and mandatory panel training will be held at the start of the Spring 2023. Apply here.
