LGBTQ+ Faculty Caucus
The purpose of the caucus is to support and organize LGBTQ+ faculty statewide, to mobilize our collective voices to improve the working conditions for LGBTQ+ faculty at MnState universities, to provide important input to the IFO’s statewide LGBTQ+ Issues Committee, and to encourage higher participation in union membership and in union leadership by LGBTQ+ faculty in the IFO.
It is imperative that faculty challenge systemic oppression to empower marginalized members through innovative and intentional equity and inclusion initiatives. Faculty must be empowered to lead efforts to foster learning communities that respect the inherent worth of all students, faculty, and staff based on values of justice, inclusion, and equity. We strive for equity within our union to build solidarity, and ensure that our collective voice is an inclusive voice.
If you self-identify as LGBTQ+ faculty at a MnState university, you are welcome to attend.
Our meetings will include sharing our experiences and developing a collective vision for the group.
