Webinar to Address Creating a Gender-Inclusive Campus

The Higher Education and Student Affairs Leadership Student Organization and the GLBTA Resource Office will host a webinar titled "Creating a Gender Inclusive Campus" at 11 a.m. Monday, Oct. 29, the Columbine B room in the University Center.

Although trans and gender-nonconforming people have become more visible on college campuses and in the media and popular culture over the last decade, many cisgender (non-transgender) student affairs professionals lack even a basic understanding of the lives of trans individuals and how to meet their needs through creating a more gender-inclusive campus.

This webinar will discuss the complex ways that students understand and express their gender today and the best practices and policies to support trans and gender-nonconforming students. Areas covered will include housing, facilities, health services, student activities, athletics, and admissions. A particular emphasis will be placed on how trans identities intersect with other aspects of student identities.

Copyright and Open Access Workshop Offered by University Libraries

The University Libraries will celebrate Open Access Week by offering an online workshop titled "Open Access and Your Publications: What's Copyright Got to Do with It?" from 12:30-2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 24, in room 303 in Michener Library.

The workshop will be conducted by Kenneth Crews, an authority on copyright who directs the Copyright Advisory Office at Columbia University and teaches in the Columbia Law School.

The open access movement has enabled easy and reliable access to a wide range of new publications. However, the success of open access hinges on the terms in the agreements between authors and publishers.

Workshop participants will become familiar with publishing agreements and learn about wording that can be used in agreements to facilitate access.
