In 2021, Weber State University Special Collections embarked on a project to help fill the gaps in the historic record to include stories from the LGBTQ+ community in Weber, Davis, and Morgan Counties. We are seeking participants who are willing to tell their stories and, when possible, share photographs, letters, diaries, and other items to help those in the future understand what it was like to be queer in Northern Utah.
As of the fall 2021 semester, Weber State University is proud to be the first institution in Utah to offer a Queers Studies Minor which will be housed within the Women & Gender Studies Program! Queer Studies (QS) is a minor program and Bachelor of Integrated Studies area of emphasis, which offers interdisciplinary, scholarly perspectives on the formation of sexuality and gender identity. Instead of conceptualizing these topics as unchangeable and only biologically driven, QS approaches these topics as they relate to the social construction of and their critical intersections with other relations of power such as race, ethnicity, class, nationality, religion and age.
Faculty and students address questions within the context of a transnational world and from different disciplines, such as, but not limited to, history, literature, sociology, communication, psychology, social work, political science and cultural studies.
Below is the text of the Weber State University Inclusivity Statement. This can be included in your syllabi to ensure that all students feel safe in your classroom.
At Weber State University, we celebrate and value all individuals of any race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, marital or parental status, age, disability, veteran or military status, or other identifiers. We demonstrate our commitment by nurturing an inclusive campus and striving to honor a balance between freedom of expression and respect for others. Together, we will continually challenge ourselves and each other in an atmosphere of mutual concern, goodwill and respect.
You can also find other university policy statements to include in your syllabi through Canvas Commons.
Each semester, the Teaching and Learning Forum holds events to promote, support and provide faculty development opportunities. These events are also designed to assist faculty in developing and strengthening their identities as teachers and scholars.
