    ENGAGEMENT

    Students in this area will understand intersectionality and how it exists within the LGBTQ+ community, the complexities of gender identity and its importance, the history of the LGBTQ+ movement and the figures that contributed to it, the varying theories behind constructions of gender, and an understanding of queer theory. These learning outcomes help LGBTQ+ students better understand thier identity and the community they are a part of. They also serve to prepare these students to use this knowledge to educate others on identifying as a member of the LGBTQ+ community. The integration of social and enrichment programs will offer students opportunities to build a support network while at the university. Assisting students in building connections and navigating campus will overall increase their resilience and equip them with the tools to better navigate a campus and the world.
