Titans UNITE!

UNITED Training for Students, Staff, and Faculty

UNITED+ Trainings

Allyship does not end with one training. For folks who have completed our Best Practices course and want to remain true allies by continuing their education about the LGBTQIA+ community, we offer supplementary trainings that delve deeper into queer and trans culture. Additionally, we encourage students, staff, and faculty to attend presentations and professional development provided by other departments across campus that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion practices.

UNITED + Trainings

Foundations 201: LGBTQIA+ Terminology Basics

Tuesday, October 10 | 1:00-2:00 p.m. | Teams

This UNITED+ workshop will continue the important conversations from the Best Practices Foundation Course and dive deeper into terminology, the difference between gender and sexuality, and the fluidity of identities. 


Navigating Legislative Advocacy in Wisconsin and the Nation for LGBTQ+ Rights

Thursday, October 19 | 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. | Reeve 220 (Oshkosh Campus)

In this training, led by Dr. Amney Harper and Dr. Teysha Bowser, we will review specific Wisconsin state legislation as well as current proposed bills that impact LGBTQ+ people. We will also look nationally at trends in recent legislation as well as what protections are in place. We will talk about what you can do to advocate, and we will discuss the greater implications of these recent changes.


Finding Family In LGBTQIA+ History

Monday, October 23 | 4:00-5:15 p.m. | Sage 2221 (Oshkosh Campus)

This UNITED+ workshop will explore the history of LGBQIA+ people from ancient to recent history. Special attention will be given to the 18th, 19th, and early 20th Centuries, when queer people around the world began to develop many of the specific identities and communities we still recognize now. Understanding LGBTQIA+ people in the past can be an important element of contemporary advocacy for queer people living today.


Embrace Teaching LGBTQIA+ Joy!

Tuesday, November 7 | 1:20-2:20 p.m. | Reeve Ballroom A (Oshkosh Campus)

Let’s talk about inclusion of LGBTQIA+ students in class! Often when teaching about LGBTQIA+ people, instructors teach about the many oppressions facing them. This focus is important in a time of rising hate and intolerance aimed at LGBTQIA+ people, particularly Trans children. At the same time, one of the ways to lift up LGBTQIA+ students in your classes and teach in opposition to this new virulent wave of hate is to teach about LGBTQIA+ joy. This event will focus on how to go beyond mainstream narratives about LGBTQIA+ people and bring a multimedia approach to teaching about the joy of LGBTQIA+ identities, embodiments, and experiences. 

About our speakers: Adrian Hanrahan, UWO Alum and UW Milwaukee Graduate Student in Media, Cinema, and Digital Studies, and Jordan Landry, CETL Director.  Adrian identifies as bisexual, femme, trans, nonbinary, queer and genderqueer along with white, working class and neurodivergent. Jordan identifies as a queer trans parent of four incredible teens and as a teacher.

Foundations 201: LGBTQIA+ Terminology Basics

Wednesday, December 13 | 10:00-11:00 a.m. | CCED 006A (Oshkosh Campus)

This UNITED+ workshop will continue the important conversations from the Best Practices Foundation Course and dive deeper into terminology, the difference between gender and sexuality, and the fluidity of identities.
