What is BCTC Alliance?
The BCTC Alliance organization is a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Intersex and Ally (LGBTQIA) staff/faculty coalition, founded in the fall of 2012, working to support and promote diversity and inclusion at BCTC.
The organization works to address the issues in the college by bringing forth the concerns of the LGBTQIA community.
As professionals of the college, BCTC staff and faculty work directly with the entire BCTC community and it is very important to increase LGBTQIA awareness. Through awareness, we hope to create an inclusive environment that benefits all students, staff and faculty and will ultimately improve the community.
Membership in BCTC Alliance is open to all BCTC faculty and staff, regardless of sexual orientation. Our goal is to expand the LGBTQIA circle of support. We welcome everyone committed to affirming and supporting our community. If you are unfamiliar, the A in the LGBTQIA community stands for ALLY and we want YOU to join our circle!
