JMU employees who are members or allies of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ) community are welcome to join the LGBTQ Faculty and Staff group. Members of the broader JMU campus and Shenandoah Valley communities are welcome to attend gatherings and social events organized by the group.
The LGBTQ Faculty & Staff Group gathers in person on a monthly basis to share updates and discuss actions or events that have taken place in sub-groups. Watch the listserv for details and announcements about upcoming gatherings.
Group members self-select and self-organize into sub-groups based on areas of interest. Current sub-groups include data collection, benefits advocacy and social events. More ideas and energy are welcome!
The JMU_LGBTQ_FACULTY_STAFF listserv is the primary method of communication among the group. The listserv is a lightly used list for social and informational announcements of interest to members. Use this as a tool to keep up to date on actions and opportunities around campus.
To join the listserv, send an email to LISTSERV@it-listserv1.jmu.edu with the message SUBSCRIBE JMU-LGBTQ-FACULTY-STAFF-L in the body of the email (not the subject line).
