LGBTQ Faculty and Staff Network

Established in 2013, The LGBTQ Faculty and Staff Network fosters inclusion and support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning UM employees and their allies.

We aim to strengthen a culture of belonging for all faculty and staff, with particular focus on those vulnerable to marginalization as a result of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

Through education, advocacy, and a regular schedule of social engagement and networking programs, we reinforce our pride in the U and each other as a community of professionals committed to doing our best work as our authentic selves.
