✔Events, Resources, Opportunities
Our newsletters highlight events, resources, and opportunities curated with the knowledge that none of us exist in silos. Listings reflect the breadth of our communities' intersecting identities and interests. If you have or know of content that supports our mission of fostering a welcoming and inclusive environment for UNC-Chapel Hill community members of all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions, please submit it for consideration to be included in our email publications.
🚫Research Participation Requests
While we recognize the importance that quality research plays in educating the public and advocating for policy changes, we do not publicize calls for participants for research studies (other than those conducted by the LGBTQ Center itself) directly to UNC-Chapel Hill students. If you would like student participation in your research, we suggest contacting LGBTQ-related student organizations directly.
🚫Advertisements for Specific Political Candidates or Parties
By state law and policy, state employees are forbidden from participating in political activities during work time or use of State funds, resources, supplies, vehicles, etc. for political activities. LGBTQ Center newsletters are considered state resources and Center staff salaries are state-funded. We may include nonpartisan events to promote civic involvement, but not events that seek more votes for any particular candidate/party.
