College life can present
particular challenges for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT)
students. Even in the more welcoming environment often associated with higher
education, certain situations can present significant legal, human and ethical
dilemmas for the school. From housing to campus clubs to locker rooms, colleges
and universities need to have policies and personnel to address the needs of
these students and make the experience a positive one.
In today's post "don't
ask don't tell" world, colleges and universities need a clear
understanding of the laws that apply to them regarding their LGBT students.
They should also have the internal policies and procedures in place to foster
an educational environment that serves all students.
Please join Jessica Gabel,
associate professor of law at Georgia State University College of Law, as she
discusses the necessary steps colleges and universities should take to ensure
they deal with LGBT legal and practical issues, develop appropriate policies and
procedures, provide a safe learning environment, handle discipline issues and
limit liability for the school, its administrators and staff.
