Building Allyship Toward a Gender-Inclusive Campus Community

Nicholas Henrickson

Presented by Nicholas Henriksen, Associate Professor (Romance Languages and Literatures & Linguistics, LSA) and ADVANCE Faculty Fellow.

During this lecture, Nicholas Henriksen will examine cisgenderism within the U-M community and present national and institutional data that will serve as a call to action to advocate for a more gender-inclusive campus. 

This lecture will also explore English terms and concepts that promote a shared understanding of sex and gender vocabulary and will examine real-life case studies, allowing participants to develop practical strategies for promoting a trans- and nonbinary-inclusive campus culture.
