This year we are calling for proposals from the community to help construct the program.

Go to our web site  for a complete list of instructions and to download a proposal form in a PDF format or in a Word format.

We would like to cover the topics listed below in 90 minute concurrent sessions, but if you have additional ideas for a concurrent session, please feel free to submit a proposal. Proposals for poster sessions are also welcome.

All responses to the Call for Proposals should be submitted to
Lorraine Schroeder at: lschroeder@uh.edu



Residence Halls – Issues/Concerns/Solutions in housing
Restrooms and Locker-rooms -  “Family friendly” and/or gender neutral approaches
Health Services - Barriers/Obstacles towards healthcare equity
Inclusive Language in all University’s Written Policies
Transition on the Job
Current Transgender Legal Issues and Rulings
Negotiating Strategies

We invite interested parties in higher education to discuss what works and what does not work in regards to codifying inclusion of "gender identity and expression" into institutional policy. The summit serves to find means to this end through discussion of divergent and respective strategies in regard to the inevitable barriers that always arise.

Putting on such an endeavor requires the dedication of a highly motivated team as well as generous sponsors. Please consider supporting grassroots training in your community by donating to the summit through the PayPal below.

If you would like someone from the summit team to give a presentation about the summit to your organization or community, email us.

Please email the Summit Planning Committee at:  txtgsummit@gmail.com
