The Presidents Commission on LGBT held its latest meeting April 18 in the Office of LGBT Life.
The primary issue on the agenda was membership. The commission voted
on nominees to fill two staff, three student, one alumni, one administration
and five at-large positions. One faculty position remains open, and some
current members were shifted among categories if they qualified for more
than one. Additional spots may open up, as not all current members had
confirmed their interest in renewing.
Officer elections will be held at the next meeting. All positions will
need to be filled at that time.
Applicants who were not selected for commission membership will be encouraged
to reapply next year. The idea of inviting nonmembers to participate in
subcommittee activities (similar to the setup of the Presidents
Commission on the Status of Women) was discussed.
The commission is working to implement a Safe Space program at Oxford
to match the one on the Atlanta campus. Safe Space participants receive
a pink logo that identifies them as allies of LGBT persons. The Oxford
program would be identical to Atlantas except the Safe Space stickers
would be yellow.
The next commission meeting will be held from 46 p.m., May 1, in 400 Administration.
