Ongoing Initiatives and Resources

Queer & Trans Faculty & Staff Association (QTFSA)

Queer & Trans Faculty & Staff Association (QTFSA) was founded in 1999 as GLEAM (Gay and Lesbian Employees at Miami). GLEAM became QTFSA and officially recognized as a Miami University faculty and staff association in 2020 with the intention of creating community and visibility for the queer and trans community at Miami University. QTFSA focuses on the following objectives to support the queer and trans faculty and staff at Miami University:

  • Connect queer and trans employees at Miami University in the effort to form a community through shared experience and identity.
  • Increase visibility of queer and trans employees at Miami University in an effort to create a sense of belonging.
  • Advocate for queer and trans employees with the intention to create awareness and change revolving around issues that affect members of the queer and trans community at Miami University.
  • Support queer and trans students by serving as a resource for them as they navigate Miami University.
