A Report on the Campus Climate for 2SLGBTQ* Students, Staff, and Faculty at UW

Community Engagement Research


By Heather Milne, Christopher Campbell, Catherine Taylor, and Larissa Wodtke

This study examines the UW campus climate for 2SLGBTQ* students based on data collected from environmental scans, a campus survey, and interviews and focus groups with staff, administrators, faculty and students (past, present, and prospective). The perception of UW as a place where feminists, environmentalists, Indigenous, and 2SLGBTQ* people find a congenial place to work for social justice is to some extent borne out by the experience of the study participants. However, support for 2SLGBTQ* people on campus is often passive and participants had many suggestions for actions that would help foster a university community that is not only inclusive but anti-oppressive.
