LGBT Students in Community Colleges
Arturo Vasquez will present research from his Master’s thesis on LGBT students in community colleges. Recent data shows that studies on LGBT community college students are practically nonexistent. This may be directly linked to the fact that sexual minorities are often reluctant to identify themselves, due to social stigma associated with sexuality labels or simply are not in a position to self-identify. This presentation, in Room 201, will examine some obstacles, challenges and provide opportunities when working with this student population.
