Press Release (ePRNews.com) - HILLSBORO, Ore. - May 04, 2017 - Edupliance announces webinar titled, “LGBT Acceptance: What All Colleges Need to Know” that aims to update attendees on how to educate the higher education community in the proper way to navigate issues regarding Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender students and staff members. The webinar goes LIVE on Tuesday, May 9, from 01:00 PM to 02:00 PM, Eastern Time.
According to the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges, there may be nearly 1 million LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) students and more than 160,000 faculty and staff members at universities and colleges across the nation. With society quickly becoming more accepting, those numbers will trend higher as more students, faculty members, and staff members voluntarily reveal they are LGBT. With more and more students entering college identifying with the LGBT community, colleges and universities must adapt effectively to support their needs. With these and other changing student demographics, it is essential that institutions of higher education proactively evaluate policies to ensure that they are meeting the needs of all students. The LGBT community is not unlike other groups from the past and the access we hold is in danger of being restricted so it is essential that institutions of higher education proactively evaluate policies to ensure that they are meeting the needs of all students.
