Creating an LGBT+ inclusive university, a practical resource guide for faculty and administrators, Kryss Shane

Summary
The rates of bullying and dropouts due to lack of safety in colleges and universities and subsequent suicidality for LGBT young adults and college students are exponentially higher than for non-LGBT people. As a result, many American college students are suffering needlessly, and many faculty and administrators are unsure of what to do. This book solves that problem. Setting out best practices and professional guidance for creating LGBT inclusive learning in schools, this approachable and easy-to-follow book guides faculty, administrators, and other staff toward appropriate and proven ways to create safer learning environments, update campus policies, enhance curricula, and better support LGBT college students as they learn
