LGBTQ+ Faculty & Staff

CWRU LGBTQ+ Faculty & Staff 

The CWRU LGBT Center is dedicated to serving everyone in the campus community and is expanding programming, specifically for groups like faculty and staff. On this page, there are resources and important dates for events and meetings! On here, you will find information about Parent Space, Faculty & Staff Mixers, and LGBTQ+ Faculty & Staff Space. 

What is Parent Space? 

This is a space for CWRU faculty and staff that are parents of LGBTQ+ children, to share resources, learn something new, or simply just be a listening ear for others.

This year, and going forward, the space will virtual only, and hopefully that makes attending easier. A zoom link will be provided when the event is active on campus groups. You may also enjoy your lunch while engaging in the space. 

This space is meant to be and will remain a thoughtful and positive environment. Parents have different experiences and possess different levels of knowledge and that is ok! It is a supportive, safe, judgment free zone that offers chances to gain new information!

Please register/be on the lookout for this meeting on campus groups!
