DePaul's LGBTQ+ Faculty and Staff Network will hold a mixer and welcome reception on Tuesday, May 2, for faculty and staff members who are LGBTQ+-identified and for allies who are committed to creating an affirming campus environment for LGBTQ+ individuals.

The gathering in the Theatre School lobby from 4 to 6 p.m. is a opportunity to meet colleagues, make new friends and reconnect with folks you haven’t seen in a while. Light refreshments will be provided courtesy of the Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity.

To help provide an accurate headcount, please register online. Can’t go but want to be heard? Have questions or concerns? Contact the network by email to get more information or to get updates on future events.

The network exists to support lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning faculty and staff at the university. It aims to foster community, advocate for the needs of LGBTQ individuals, and serve as a resource for all faculty and staff. Membership is open to any self-selected DePaul University faculty or staff person interested in affirming and acting in alliance with the LGBTQ community.
