LGBTQA Center Advocacy
"To be afraid is to behave as if the truth is not true."
- Bayard Rustin
Need help with advocacy?
If you you would like to learn more about being advocate for LGBTQ people on campus, contact the LGBTQA Center. We can help you to learn about LGBTQ identities, familiarize yourself with the University's programs and services, and point you toward resources at UVM and in the wider community.
When UVM students, staff, and faculty members tell us about problems they've encountered, we work with offices and organizations throughout the University to change UVM's systems and processes and find ways for UVm to work better for our LGBTQA community.
Past partnerships have included:
- Office of the Registrar: Preferred Name & Pronoun system
- Human Resources: Trans-inclusive health benefits
- UVM Athletics: You Can Play Project video by recent alumnae Gretchen Powers and Kaleigh Wood
The Center is an integral part of UVM's efforts to eliminate discrimination and bias. If you are a target of bias on-campus, contact Police Services to report it. If you don't understand the process or would like help talking to police services, we can help you report the incident.
The Center distributes several publications to the LGBTQA community, including a 411 with lsits of local LGBTQ resources, and an affirming card for LGBTQA-affirming UVMers to display.
