  • Advocating for the recruitment, retention and professional development of sexuality and gender identity minority faculty and staff.
  • Serving in a variety of mentorship roles for our students and peers, both professionally and personally
  • Improving the recruitment, retention and graduation rates of LGBTQ students.
  • Maintaining a cultural presence on campus and in the community, and community building. 
  • Providing input in institutional planning committees involved in varied university practices, and advocating for sexual and gender identity issues in policy and representation on our campus. 
  • Working with campus organizations and entities to advance diversity and multicultural initiatives and programs at K-State, as well as advancing civil rights and social justice for all members of the campus community.
