Out List

UMKC faculty and staff who choose to participate in the Out List demonstrate their commitment to ensuring the LGBTQIA+ community has a visible presence at UMKC.

Sharing this information is one of the many ways we create an inclusive, welcoming campus for all our students, faculty, staff and visitors. By being visible, this may create opportunities for students and peers to identify mentors or a supportive person who can share in their experience as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community.

We also recognize that there are many people who cannot contribute to the creation of community as a part of the Out List because it may not be safe for them to be out in this way. We affirm that there are multiple ways in which people exist in LGBTQIA+ communities and that this list is one way to find support on campus.

Although we do not have an Allies List, we ask allies to continue to challenge and grow themselves in their allyship and pursue opportunities to demonstrate their allyship in supporting students and peers. We need your help in challenging heterosexist and cissexist attitudes, by continually supporting campus and community LGBTQIA+ policies, programs, and events.
