Title: Advisor Tool Kit for Advising Transgender Students
Lead Presenter: Quentin Alexander
Date: October 08, 2020    Time: 1:10 pm - 1:55 pm
Room: Semi-Live
Abstract: While some state legislation prevents discrimination of transgender community, federal laws lack the same protections required for the safety of this population. As a result, legislation about the transgender community varies from state to state. This impacts how transgender students experience life on college campuses. The purpose of this presentation is to provide participants with information about ways academic advisors can form trusting relationships with and advocate for transgender students. Such information is critical to promote the healthy development on transgender students on campuses they can experience as unwelcoming or hostile. The presenters will provide participants with a toolkit of information to include inclusive and recently appropriate language, advocacy strategies, and much more. This is a lecture style presentation, but audience participation is highly encouraged.
