RUTGERS UNIVERSITY - NEWARK
NEWARK, NEW JERSEY
The NELGBTC was founded in 1995, at the University at Albany, Albany, NY, to bring LGBTQ* college students together and demand change from the State Universities of New York System (SUNY).
Since its founding, the northeast has seen substantial changes on college campuses and the SUNY system, but there is still much to do. Today the NELGBTC serves student and administrative leaders from Maine to Washington D.C.
The NELGBTC began officially traveling to other campuses in 2010 in order to impact other campuses, provide better access to students in different parts of the region and highlight colleges committed to LGBTQ* inclusion. Annually the conference travels to a new location.
The following is a list of the known dates, themes, keynote speakers, conference directors and assistant directors for the Northeast LGBT College Conference since its founding.
We envision and continually work to prepare leaders able to build a more just and sustainable community in every sense of the word.
The NELGBTC works through education, collaboration and deliberate dialogue to fight all forms of Racism, Ableism, Classism, Sexism and Heterosexism in our society in order to provide a more supportive and better affirming environment for all Students, Faculty and Staff on college campuses across the Northeast.
WHO WE ARE
A student founded, funded and run conference since 1995. To this end the Northeast LGBT* College Conference serves to highlight and celebrate Colleges and Universities working to provide an affirming educational environment for all students. By connecting with local, regional and national activists and organizations to bring LGBT* and allied college students, advisors and administrators in the Northeast together to share best practices, programs, policies and resources.
WHAT WE DO
We believe in Campus Pride and share in the vision for campuses and a society free of anti-LGBTQ* prejudice, bigotry and hate. Together we work to provide online resources, regional conferences, programs, speakers and foster connections to aid our region in developing student leaders and campus networks able to create sustainable positive change.
WHY WE DO IT
We believe the United States and Higher Education should be open and affirming to all people, including LGBTQ* and Allied Students, Faculty and Staff. We KNOW that this can only truly be realized when all forms of prejudice are eradicated.
