Welcome to our website!


Hi folks -

As co-Chairs of the LGBT Caucus, Christine and I would like to welcome you to the Caucus.

The Caucus has steadily grown in the past 5 years, and we’re hoping 2013-2014 proves to be another busy and productive year.

Please keep an eye out for some great programs the Caucus will sponsor and host this Spring Semester including:  “A Night With Kye” on February 26th;  TGIF Series (Feb, March, Apr), Black History Month programs, and Women’s History Month Film Series.

As a reminder, our Caucus is open to all faculty, staff, graduate students who identify as allies, and/or LGBT. We’d like to have folks think of the Caucus as a place where folks can meet and connect and get involved with social events/community events in our region. As part of the University’s mission in creating and fostering diversity, we hope our Caucus can help and assist in providing feedback and support in this area. We’re proud to be a part of UD, and have been a part of the wonderful equality steps forward in the past couple of years re: evolution of same-sex partner stipend benefits to helping with information sharing of civil union benefit information and now DOMA/federal rights and state rights marriage equality benefit transition information.

We welcome you! Please spend a little time getting to know us and feel free to share any great ideas you might have for this academic year!

Let’s make it a productive one!

Karla A. Bell and Christine Grott – Co-Chairs
