Q’nnect: This is a great way to meet and connect with faculty, staff, and students in the community.
Are you looking to connect with other LGBT students, staff, and faculty on campus? Are you looking to find camaraderie or mentorship with others from the LGBT community? The Q’nnect program is designed to bring together members of the LGBTQ community from across campus. This new program is open to undergraduates, graduate students, staff, and faculty. Each Q’nnect pod will have at least one member from each of these communities. The pod groups are paired with the expectation that they will meet informally 1-2 times a semester. Each Q’nnect group is free to meet on or off campus —over coffee, lunch, or at a campus event. Whatever the group decides upon, they shouldn’t feel obligated to spend money. This program intends to:
· Facilitate community building of LGBTQ individuals across campus in order to support and encourage one another
· Foster intergenerational dialogue and understanding
· Acknowledge and utilize the strengths that each group member offers to the community
· Support and encourage members in cultivating a beneficial group relationship
If you are interested in being paired with other students, staff, and faculty please fill out the quick application, which can be found here. Depending on your indicated preference, pods can be formed randomly or with more attention paid to individual preferences. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
