GLBTIQ Initiatives

  • Presidential Commission on GLBTIQ Initiatives

    The purpose of this commission is to serve as an advisory body on matters of concern to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and questioning persons (GLBTIQ) across the University community. The commission will ensure that the University’s programs and services are inclusive to GLBTIQ constituents. 

  • Archives

    In 2013, the KSU Archives joined the Georgia LGBTQ Archives Project, a collaboration of archivists and members of the LGBT community, to raise awareness about the importance of collecting and saving the LGBT history in the state. At the same time, the Archives embarked on an initiative to collect the history of the LGBT community at KSU and in North and Northwest Georgia. Recent acquisitions under this initiative include the Jon C. Greaves Collection, the David Neubecker Collection, the Marietta Theatre in the Square Records, and a series of oral history interviews.
