LGBTQ Staff & Faculty Directory
Information for Faculty & Staff
If you're LGBTQ staff or faculty at UVM, the following information about Human Resources and workplace issues may be of help. (For general information about HR and benefits, see their website).
UVM's Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance plan now includes services for Gender Reassignment Surgery and Gender Reassignment Therapy from a Network or non-Network Provider up to $75,000 per lifetime, subject to Coinsurance, Deductibles, Co-payments with certain requirements and limitations. Details are outlined in the policy document.
LGBTQ-affirming healthcare in the Burlington community is available through:
- The Vermont Diversity Health Project, which helps patients identify friendly, supportive and effective healthcare providers, and offers training and support to enhance providers' skill in working with LGBTQ people.
- The Community Health Center of Burlington Transgender Health Clinic, which welcomes patients seeking healthcare sensitive to the needs and concerns of individuals in the transgender community. This clinic is a safe and trans-affirmative space for patients to receive full-spectrum care including hormone replacement therapy as well as routine medical care.
We maintain a directory of LGBTQ faculty and staff.
Both sexual orientation and gender identity/expression are included in UVM's non-discrimination policy. Additionally, the city of Burlington and the State of Vermont prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity or expression.
Trouble at your workplace due to homophobia or transphobia? Facing issues related to coming out or gender transition at your job? LGBTQA Services can provide support and advocacy. We can also help educate and train co-workers and supervisors around LGBT issues. The Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity is another important resource when dealing with homophobic or transphobic discrimination or harassment on the job.
