Please pardon duplications.
The Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community at Cal (CAC-LGBT) invites membership nominations and self-nominations from faculty, staff, and students who are committed to LGBT equality.
Since reconstituting in 2007, the CAC-LGBT has accomplished much to increase the visibility of the contributions and concerns of LGBT staff, faculty, and students among Berkeley’s initiatives for diversity, equity, and inclusion. A full agenda awaits us in 2012-13.
Some of our recent projects have included:
Advising Chancellor Birgeneau on issuing these statements: http://www.berkeley.edu/news/berkeleyan/2008/05/08_diversitystatement.shtml and http://berkeley.edu/news/media/releases/2008/10/22_propeight.shtml .
Addressing the academic climate and resources for LGBT students and scholars.
Addressing the needs of transgender persons on campus.
Advising the campus and UCOP on parental leave and adoption benefits.
A summary of activities and briefing statements, as well as our mission statement and current membership roster, can be found at: http://lavendercal.berkeley.edu/resources_cac.html .
For more information about CAC-LGBT membership composition, responsibilities and qualifications, and for an application, please see the attached. We invite expressions of interest in serving for 2012-13 or 2013-14. (Please note that, due to limitations of committee size, not all nominations may result in being invited to serve during a given year.)
