LGBT Campus Climate

Campus Pride, a nonprofit organization that advocates for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students and faculty, has released the 2010 State of Higher Education for LGBT People.

The report draws on surveys from 6,000 students, faculty, and staff at colleges across the United States. The respondents described a “chilly” climate on campus that included higher than average rates of harassment and discrimination. Transgendered campus members in particular had negative experiences at their institutions.

The study’s lead author noted that less than 8% of accredited colleges and universities have an inclusive LGBT policy. Such official language both sets an expectation of civility and enables aggrieved students and faculty to seek redress.

Here in the Department of Medicine, we administered a survey about resources for LGBT faculty and patients. The responses show a generally tolerant environment but with additional education needed.

  3. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  4. That’s so sweet, I love this image in particular. Vector in Photoshop o_O, cool. I usually use Illustrator for all my vector arts, but I actually caught the “record-a-sped-up-video” bug a few weeks ago (from Dan doing his thing on the castle crashers blog) and put one to the tune of my Super-Pope hat for the dinos. Mike (our programmer) is due to put out one of him coding. Very informative 😉 it will feature a Rick Rollin’ soundtrack.

    I saw this really good post today….

  6. I had been curious about if you ever thought of modifying the design of your site? It is well written; I enjoy what you have got to state. But maybe you could include a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. You have got an awful lot of wording for only having one or two graphics. Maybe you can space it out better?
