Center for Diversity and Inclusion

Discussion Groups

What is a Discussion Group?

Discussion groups are formed with the goal of creating a safe space and an environment conducive to critical conversation and community building. Joining a discussion group at the Center for Diversity and Inclusion may be of importance to anyone who is interested in promoting, supporting, and celebrating inclusion and diversity. Conversations typically focus on a particular topic, and are conducted in a group the size that allows participation by all members.

LGBTQIA+ Discussion Group

Time: Update coming soon
Place: The Center for Diversity and Inclusion (Hamar House)

Looking for a safe and affirming place to converse with other members of the LGBTQIA+ community? Look no further! The LGBTQIA+ discussion group is a supportive dialogue group designed to help students process identity related challenges. Topics include but are not limited to: belonging, community, coming out, intersecting identities, and current events. The group is co-facilitated by two LGBTQIA+ students and is a closed group, meaning one must identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and/or asexual* to attend. We ask that allies show their support by joining the LGBTQIA+ student organization, Keweenaw Pride (KP).

*This list is not exhaustive. Those holding marginalized sexual orientations and gender identities that are not explicitly listed, are welcome to attend the discussion group.

Asexual/Aromantic Discussion Group

Discussion, games, puns and cake. All people who identify as asexual or aromantic (including grey and demi) are welcome.
