Commission on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equity seeks award nominees

Each year the Commission on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equity (CLGBTE) recognizes the contributions of individuals within the Penn State community who have shown outstanding service regarding lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) concerns. While there are many who work tirelessly throughout the academic year to assist the LGBTQ community, the Ally Recognition Award and the Outstanding Service Award recognize individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the Penn State LGBTQ community. Current Penn State faculty, staff and students are eligible for both awards.

To submit a nomination for one of the awards presented by CLGBTE, visit equity.psu.edu/clgbte/awards. Nominations are due by April 5. For more information, contact Terry Watson, chair of the Nominating and Awards Committee and CLGBTE past-chair, at tlw37@psu.edu or contact the CLGBTE office at 814-863-7889.

Recipients selected for these awards will be honored at the Penn State Lavender Graduation at 6 p.m. April 19, in Heritage Hall, HUB-Robeson Center, on the University Park campus.
