LEARN (LGBTQIA Education and Research Network) is one of UNCG’s newest networks, dedicated to advancing the health, wellness, and quality of life of the LGBTQIA population through research, education, and community engagement. Housed in the Center for Women’s Health and Wellness in the School of Health and Human Sciences, LEARN is building strong and productive interdisciplinary networks of faculty, staff and students from across the university and community agencies to promote scholarship, education, practice, and policy in support of this mission.
The LEARN Steering Committee conducted a strategic planning mini-retreat in Spring 2015 to examine three areas of focus and interest for the 2015-16 academic year: Research, Pedagogy, and Safe & Supportive UNCG Community. As part of its strategic planning, LEARN is conducting a brief survey for UNCG faculty and students who are engaged in teaching and research at UNCG who might be involved or interested in teaching, research, or scholarship related to advancing the health, wellness and quality of life of LGBTQIA populations through research, education, and community development.
The center’s leaders have a request regarding a survey:
LEARN is looking to document UNCG faculty pedagogy and research that includes topics relating to sexuality, queer/trans* studies, and/or LGBTQIA-related issues. We are inviting all faculty and students engaged in teaching and research to complete a short survey, with the goals of better understanding how these issues are being addressed in UNCG classes and in our scholarly activities and helping create intellectual and pedagogical community around these topics.
We hope that you will take just a few minutes (around 5) to complete this survey if:
- You are incorporating topics relating to sexuality, queer/trans* studies, and/or LGBTQIA-related issues into your teaching
- Your current or past research/scholarship focuses on, or incorporates, sexuality, gender expression, queer identity, queer studies, trans* studies, LGBTQIA populations, or collects data/information from study participants related to these issues.
- You would like to further develop your teaching and/or scholarship in these areas.
Thank you for your time and consideration. If you have any questions or concerns regarding LEARN or this survey, please contact us.
