From the thedaonline.com comes an opinion piece on how the addition of a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender studies center could a “step in the right direction for the school’s future”:
There has been a consistent effort within the Student Government Association’s current administration to lobby for the center. Not only that, but among their master project list – viewable on the SGA website – are other related projects such as gender-neutral bathrooms and a Student Diversity Group. They should absolutely be applauded and congratulated for their hard work.
At the end of the day though, it comes down to the senior administration and the Board of Governors at WVU to act decisively on the topic at hand. They, too, ultimately deserve the credit for taking the necessary steps to further WVU’s Strategic 2020 plan.
By implementing these steps, the WVU campus becomes more LGBT friendly ,and it will ultimately lead to better understanding of the issues that some of our fellow Mountaineers face on a day-to-day basis.
