School of Education launches Initiative at Lubin House
July 21, 2010
The Queering Education Research Institute (QuERI), an independent think-tank and research initiative affiliated with the Syracuse University School of Education (SOE), held day long activities at the Lubin House.
A graduate student roundtable to promote awareness of LGBTQ issues in education and expand the mission of QuERI was held in the afternoon. It was attended by SU students, alumni, graduate students from New York City colleges and universities, and members of the New York City community concerned about LGBTQ issues in education. A reception celebrating the launch of the QuERI website kicked off the evening festivities. SiriusXM OutQ radio's Michelangelo Signorile served as the evening’s special guest host.
QuERI, part of the Cultural Foundations of Education Department in the SOE, was created to bridge the gap between research and practice in the teaching of LGBTQ students, and to create LGBTQ youth-affirming environments and LGBTQ youth-serving programs.
