To Clarify, SGA LGBTQ

First and foremost, I would like to thank the Newswire for writing an article on our hard work and summer progress. We are proud to have made strides in several multifaceted projects and initiatives over the past few months. However, I would like to clarify the progress made on the LGBTQ position. Over the summer, SGA re-evaluated and changed – in a significant way – the position the previous Executive Board had created. Our temporary position, the LGBTQ Training and Support Intern (LTSI) will have the responsibility of coordinating a training that will be similar to Safezone as both educational and supportive. This training will be open to students, faculty, and staff. The LTSI will also be charged with conducting a needs assessment for Xavier and conducting further research on how other

institutions, both Jesuit and non-Jesuit, provide support for their LGBTQ communities. The LTSI can then suggest possible next steps for Xavier's LGBTQ support. Applications for this position will be open to all students, including graduate students, later this semester. I hope this gives a clearer picture of the LGBTQ Training and Support Intern's future role at Xavier.

Thank you!
