As we celebrate Pride Month, we would like to extend an invitation for you to join AACRAO's LGBTQIA+ Caucus. AACRAO Caucuses provide an opportunity for growth and professional development to their members. According to founding caucus member Brad
Since its founding at the Annual Meeting in Boston, in 1994, the LGBTQIA+ Caucus strives to work for LGBTQIA+ rights and educate higher education professionals so that they can better serve all of their students with an understanding of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
Through the years, members of our caucus have presented sessions providing education and information about issues related to our communities. The Caucus has also provided wonderful networking opportunities for our members which have often led to lifelong
friendships. Our Caucus welcomes any AACRAO member willing to advance LGBTQIA+ rights, regardless of identity or orientation.
