Staff & Faculty

Pronoun Practices for Teaching and Learning


Staff and faculty were an integral part of the various Working Groups of the LGBTQ Initiative, and the Center is pleased to partner with many of them as we build our educational programs to create a more inclusive campus community.

Read more about the history of the Center including the 2007 Out for Change campaign and the various working groups:

Take a brief look into the work and reach of the Center Initiatives across campus through our Video Gallery:

We offer a range of trainings and workshops for the classroom to create awareness, increase knowledge base, and build skills.

We can also provide facilitator trainings for students who wish to develop their skills around dialogue and cross-cultural communication to be more effective leaders and allies.

Tagliabue Faculty Research Award

We partnered with the Office of the Provost to announce the inaugural Tagliabue Faculty Research Award for the academic year 2015-2016. 


The Tagliabue Endowment for LGBTQ Life was established in the Fall of 2012 under the direction of the LGBTQ Center located within the Division of Student Affairs. The endowment set up by Chan & Paul Tagliabue (current Vice-Chair, former Chair, Board of Directors, Georgetown University) is to ensure sustained support and growth for the initiatives of the LGBTQ Center.  Part of the vision for this endowment is to enhance and to deepen our understanding and knowledge of LGBTQ issues and histories, and to provide linkages between student experiences and academic life.

This year, we are excited to announce a faculty research award. There is ONE award in the amount of $2,000 each academic year which will be awarded to a member of faculty who is working on LGBTQ and gender and sexuality related questions in any discipline. Faculty receiving the award will be asked to work with the LGBTQ Center to present on the project at the end of the year; and also attend a spring ceremony along with others as part of the Tagliabue Initiative celebration. 

The inaugural award has been given to Prof. Julia Watts Belser.  Learn more about her project (new window).

I AM Campaign

The “I AM” campaign is an annual part of OUTober that allows students to proudly declare their identities. Since its formation this campaign has been a form of empowerment and visibility for students across campus. This year we have also asked faculty and staff to participate. What does “I Am” mean to you?
