LGBTQ Inclusivity

I am a member of the Penn State LGBTQ Safe Zone program.  As a Safe Zone participant and personally as a member of the LGBTQ community, I help connect students with resources on campus to address problems they may face that interfere with their academic and social success on campus as it relates to issues surrounding sexual orientation and gender identity. In addition, I integrate various LGBTQ material and perspectives into my curriculum whenever possible.

I am also an affiliate for the Penn State Commission on LGBTQ Equity for the 2017-18 academic year. In this role, I work with the university administration to design and to help implement various policies focused on making the campus more inclusive and welcoming for LGBTQ students, staff, and faculty.
