The Office of Faculty Development in cooperation with the LGBT Center and the CWRU Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Allies (LGBTA) Committee, will sponsor the formation of an LGBTQ research group on campus.

This new interdisciplinary group of faculty, staff and administrators will focus on scholarly endeavors and research projects and/or initiatives related to LGBTQ studies. Those interested in, or currently conducting research in, LGBTQ studies or diversity content areas related to LGBTQ studies should consider participating in this new research group.

An initial meeting will take place in late February or early March. Any faculty, staff or administrator who wishes to be involved with the new research group and notified of meetings may join the list serve by emailing Hadassah Sweet at
