Expanding the Circle: Creating an Inclusive Environment in Higher Education for LBGTQ Students and Studies. In this conference, you will not only address a variety of factors that have contributed to excluding lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) issues from academic study and student life; but you will also explore strategies to make our campuses more inclusive for all students. Through five preconference workshops and forty concurrent interactive sessions, you will have the opportunity to examine strategies and best practices that effectively integrate LGBTQ areas of teaching and research with student life activities. This will be among the first national conferences in higher education to focus on LGBTQ concerns by seeking connections across academic and student affairs, across kinds of diversities, across disciplines, and across LGBTQ subfields. Join us in dialogue to create greater inclusion for all members of our campus communities as well as enrich the quality of education and scholarship in higher education.
