The LGBTQIA+ Caucus is a group of faculty and staff across all of NCC dedicated to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, and asexual/aromantic/agender communities along with those who would be allies. The goals of the Caucus, working closely with the office of Diversity and Inclusion, include:
- Creating a sense of community, visibility, and normalizing supportive actions, committed to building workplace equity
- Assessing the current culture to identify strengths and areas for improvement
- Sharing existing resources and creating new ones where appropriate
- Promote emotional wellness and a safe environment for all
We seek to foster a welcoming safe space and environment free from judgement or discrimination for those of all gender expressions and sexual orientations. We work as a community to ensure and maintain equitable treatment in all areas, and a work environment free of discrimination for employees and students. We act as allies for LGBTQIA+ people to promote a safe environment for diverse expression of gender and sexual identity.
