Nieberding, Ronald A., Ed.
This report contains the recommendations of the select committee for lesbian and gay concerns for Rutgers University. The executive summary outlines the principal goals and objectives for the university. Section 1 describes an agenda to improve public relations at Rutgers. Bigotry and homophobia are discussed and representative comments from a questionnaire distributed to faculty and staff are listed. A discussion of the history of lesbian and gay people at Rutgers is presented and illustrated through examples of two organized efforts (Rutgers Student Homophile League and its successor, the Rutgers University Lesbian/Gay Alliance). The structure and work of the Select Committee for Lesbian and Gay Concerns is described. Included are the role of the task groups, commissioned surveys, and open forums and public outreach efforts. Other Rutgers University initiatives are also presented. Section 2 contains the recommendations of the select committee regarding: (1) a university-wide coordinator for lesbian and gay concerns; (2) curriculum and academic affairs; (3) student life and services; (4) employee concerns; and (5) university publications. Throughout the report, short segments of information are presented in boxes. These include: what is homophobia; is sensitivity training enough; to report harassment; faculty reading: suggestions for teaching; and true stories: lesbian and gay life at Rutgers.
