This entry was posted on Monday, November 6th, 2017

Members of the LGBTQ community face an elevated risk of suicide four-times greater than that among their heterosexual counterparts. Social stigma, discrimination, unsafe schools, and ineffective providers all contribute to this disparity.

To increase awareness of this issue, students and several on-campus organizations have taken matters into their own hands.

Beginning on Monday, Nov. 6, Addlestone Library’s Rotunda will feature The College Cares LGBTQ Quilt created by students during LGBTQ History Month (every October).

The College Cares LGBTQ Quilt is a collaboration between the Office of Institutional DiversityCounseling and Substance Abuse ServicesFraternity & Sorority LifeHigdon Student Leadership CenterSafeZone, and the Office of Student Life.

The quilt will be on display through Friday, Nov. 10.
