Four Campus Life professionals partnered with a former Campus Life colleague to deliver a presentation at the NASPA Annual Conference in Los Angeles in March. The session, “Infusing Intersectionality into Queer Advocacy & Support at PWIs,” focused on predominantly white institutions (PWIs) and provided “examples of successful practices that center intersectionality in pursuit of just and equitable environments, particularly for queer/trans students.” Presenters included DeLa Dos, Megan Pendleton, Malcolm Robinson, Danielle Bruce Steele, and former Campus Life employee, Aysha Dos.
