Examines strategiesand best practices that effectively integrate LGBTQ areas of teaching andresearch with student life activities.

Many educational professionals agree that the time has cometo expand their circle of inclusion and broaden their definition of diversityby increasing LGBTQ studies, but the question of how to do so is still debated.Although some colleges and universities have been incorporating LGBTQ studiesfor decades, courses and programs continue to be pockets of innovation ratherthan models of inclusion for all of higher education. Colleges and universitiesneed to encourage faculty members to teach and research a wide range of LGBTQtopics, as well as support student life professionals in building inclusivecampus communities. This book includestestimonies that alert educators to possible pitfalls and successes of theirpolicies through an analysis of changing student attitudes. Based on these casestudies, the contributors offer practical suggestions for the classroom and theprovost’s office, demonstrating not only the gains that have been made by LGBTQstudents and the institutions that serve them, but also the tensions thatremain.
