Support LGBTQ College and University Students of ColorArchived
Work with college and university students? View this webinar to hear about efforts to help lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) college and university students of color prevent HIV and feel healthy and connected on campus overall. Three panelists describe their work to address the gaps in services and feelings of isolation that LGBTQ students and students of color face. They share ways that they have acknowledged the unique needs of LGBTQ students and students of color and fostered inclusive environments. The What Works in Youth HIV team share several resources to examine current practices for supporting LGBTQ students.
- Leslie Hall, Human Rights Campaign (HRC): Leslie manages the Historically Black Colleges and Universities Program (HBCU) at HRC, which involves providing support to LGBTQ and allied students, faculty, and staff who wish to improve LGBTQ inclusion on their campuses.
- Kelby Harrison, University of Southern California (USC) LGBT Resource Center: Kelby directs the LGBT Resource Center at USC and focuses on creating inclusive environments for LGBT students at the university's health center and throughout the campus.
- Chereen Leid, University of the District of Columbia (UDC) HIV/AIDS, HCV & Substance Abuse Prevention Program: Chereen coordinates UDC’s MSI-CBO grant that helps empower students by increasing access to HIV prevention services on campus.
- Facilitator: Frances Marshman, JSI: Frances researches and edits many of the WWYH pages and has great interest in improving the lives of LGBTQ students of color on college and university campuses.
