LGBTQ* Faculty and Staff Alliance at K-State
The purpose of LGBTQ*FSA is to support and advocate for sexuality and gender identity based issues on the Kansas State University campus.
The LGBT faculty and staff along with campus allies seek to encourage and support Kansas State University’s efforts in the recruitment, retention, and professional advancement of sexuality and gender identity minority faculty and staff. This includes mentoring of junior faculty/staff, professional development, opportunities for advancement and promotion, and advocating for dual career issues.
We also advocate for Kansas State University’s efforts in the recruitment and retention of diverse sexuality and gender identity minority students by serving as resources and mentors to the students, support of student organizations, and advisement of University recruitment, retention, and graduation efforts.
The LGBTQ* FSA also advocates for a cultural presence on campus and in the community, and by assisting with activities advancing the education and advocacy for sexuality and gender identity topics. This may include having input in institutional planning committees involved in varied University practices and advocacy for sexuality and gender identity issues in policy and in representation on our campus.
By working with campus organizations and entities we advance diversity and multi-cultural initiatives and programs within Kansas State University and the advancement of civil rights and social justice for all members of the campus community.
