COE Celebrates PRIDE Month

UNLV's College of Education wishes you a happy PRIDE month
Jun. 1, 2021

In June, we pause to celebrate our colleagues, students, and community members who identify as LGBTQ+. During Pride month, the College of Education recommits itself to providing an affirming academic and social environment for our LGBTQ+ faculty, staff, and students. Furthermore, we condemn acts of pervasive discrimination that plague this population and hinder our collective equity effort -- acts that marginalize those of intersecting marginalized identities.

I encourage you to visit the UNLV Office of Student Diversity and Social Justice’s resource page to build your competency and identify programming and resources. Here are additional higher education, PK-12 education, and mental health resources to share with your colleagues and students:

Recommendations for Supporting Trans and Queer Students of Color

Examples of Policies and Emerging Practices for Supporting Transgender Students

A Workplace Divided: Understanding the Climate for LGBTQ Workers Nationwide

Bullying Prevention and LGBTQ+ Youth

Guidelines for Psychological Practice with Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Clients

Competencies for Counseling with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, and Ally Individuals

In community,

Danica G. Hays, Interim Dean
