LGBTQ Faculty/Staff Alliance

Queer Faculty & Staff Alliance

The Queer Faculty and Staff Alliance at Union provides a space for all LGBTQ+ faculty and staff members through various events and activities around the year to help get acquainted with one another (there's only so many of us), share experiences, and most importantly celebrate our pride and identities. We are a great resource for new and existing employees to learn what's it like for the queer community in the Capital Region. Let's have a kiki.

Our Alliance aims to

  • Foster a sense of community for LGBTQ+ faculty and staff members within the Union College community, through networking events and programs
  • Connect with our LGBTQ+ alums and outreach to our LGBTQ+ students to provide support and mentorship
  • Collaborate with college administration and the LGBTQ+ Affairs Committee to strengthen institutional efforts in building an inclusive environment for LGBTQ+ members at the College

Interested in joining the Alliance? Please connect with Charles Batson, batsonc@union.edu, Brianne Brinker, brinkerb@union.edu or Amanda Iverson, iversona@union.edu.
