I am a graduate student in the Higher Education and Student Affairs 
Administration (HESA) Program at the University of Vermont (UVM). I am 
currently seeking self-identifying undergraduate*Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, 
and Queer (LGBQ) Students of Color* to participate in my research study. 
The purpose of this exploratory study is to understand the experiences 
of LGBQ Students of Color in undergraduate university classrooms at a 
pre-dominantly White institution. I hope that recommendations from this 
study may improve classroom climate and facilitate better support for 
these students as well as the faculty teaching them.

In order to be eligible to participate,

  * You must be 18 years old or older
  * You must be a full-time undergraduate student at the University of
    Vermont (UVM)
  * You must self-identify as non-heterosexual (i.e. those who
    personally and publicly identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or queer)
  * You must self-identify as a Student of Color (i.e. Non-White
    students who are born and raised in the United States and identify
    personally and publically as African, Latino/a, Asian, Native
    American or Bi/Multi-racial)

If you are interested or would like more information about the specifics 
of this study, please contact the principal investigator, Dirk Rodricks 
at 802-656-7990 or via e-mail at [log in to unmask]

This research study is sponsored by the Graduate Program in Higher 
Education and Student Affairs, Department of Leadership and 
Developmental Sciences, College of Education and Social Services at the
