Back-to-school event for LGBTQ+ and Allies

On Thursday, August 16 from 4 – 6 p.m., a group of faculty, staff and allies from CU Denver and the Anschutz Medical Campus will convene at the Fulginiti Pavillion for Bioethics and Humanities on the Anschutz Medical Campus to show solidarity with LGBTQ+ members of our community. This back-to-school event, Something Queer, is an annual occasion planned by our LGBTQ+ faculty, and is meant to build community and welcome new LGBTQ+ faculty, staff and allies.

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is honored to sponsor this event. I’m looking forward to sharing thoughts about the value that our LGBTQ+ faculty and staff add to our educational environment. There will also be time for socializing and community building.

If you would like to attend the event, either as a member of the LGBTQ+ community or as an ally, we welcome you! Partners and families are also welcome.

We remain dedicated to enriching the educational experience on our campuses by cultivating a climate of inclusiveness, respect and understanding for everyone. This is an institutional commitment and a responsibility that we all share.

Please RSVP below. The event is free. Light refreshments will be provided.
