Que(e)ries: Diverse Genders and Sexualities Action Subcommittee

In the Spirit of our Lasallian Catholic* heritage, we are committed to respect for and holistic development of all persons. We recognize that our community includes individuals with vast and intersectional identities including diverse gender identities, gender expressions, sexualities, sexual expressions, family, and relational structures and backgrounds. As such we aim to actively inform and support policies, practices, and actions that affirm and celebrate the LGBTQIA+ communities at Saint Mary's College. We will do this via the promotion of equitable and collaborative work grounded in rich traditions of resistance, liberation, and social justice. 

Membership: 

The subcommittee shall be Co-Chaired by two representatives of the CCIE, made up of faculty and staff and one student representative. The core working group shall consist of faculty, staff, and students ideally including campus offices and groups who are invested in initiatives supporting our charge. The College Provost and the Associate Provost & Senior Diversity Officer shall be considered ex-officio members of the subcommittee. The subcommittee will also remain an open space available to members of the Saint Mary's community who seek ways to contribute to the charge. We especially welcome members who bring intersectional perspectives to the work of the committee.
