St. Paul Campus GLBTA Advisory Group

Join our listserv! Contact Emily at eehling@umn.edu.

About the Advisory Group

The College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resources Sciences-Office for Diversity and Inclusion has partnered with the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Ally (GLBTA) Programs Office, and the Multicultural Center for Academic Excellence (MCAE) to raise awareness and build institutional capacity around key issues of the GLBTA community on the St. Paul Campus.

The St. Paul GLBTA Advisory Group (comprised of faculty, students and staff) was formed to better address many campus-wide challenges our collaborative work identified, and facilitate a broader appreciation and greater understanding of the GLBTA community. The group now has a wide representation from areas across campus including the College of Biological Sciences, College of Design, College of Continuing Education, Career and Internship Services, Magrath Library, and Bailey Hall.

The St. Paul Campus GLBTA Advisory Group is open to all faculty, staff, and students.
