Indiana University Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Student Support Services Office records, 1970-2010
Scope and Content Note
This collection contains the records of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender
Student Support Services (GLBTSSS) office. The records span the years from 1970 to
2010. This collection is organized in to three series: Program files, Conferences,
and Administrative files.
The first series, Program files (1989-2007), is further organized into two
sub-series: Campus programs & activism and Speakers and events. The Campus
programs & activism (1989-2004) sub-series is organized alphabetically and is
comprised of materials that relate to GLBT programming and support at Indiana
University. This sub-series is differentiated from that of Speakers and events in
that these programs and task forces were typically more long-term, or were created
to address specific issues existing on campus. This sub-series also includes
information on the Educational Task Force on Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Concerns,
which was the initial group that evaluated the need for a GLBT Student Support
Services office. Additionally, this sub-series contains information on the Peer
Support Project, which involves GLBT students serving as mentors for other GLBT
students on campus that may be struggling with their sexuality. The Speakers and
Events (1990-2007) sub-series is arranged chronologically and contains
correspondence and publicity material related to the appearance of GLBT affiliated
speakers and to other events that occurred at or near Indiana University.
The second series, Conferences (2001-2009), is arranged alphabetically and contains
information on two GLBT conferences that Indiana University hosted: the Midwest
Bisexual Lesbian Gay Transgender Ally College Conference (MBLGTACC), and the Sexual
Minority Youth in the Heartland Conference (SMYHL). Records from the SMYHL
conference comprise the bulk of this series, and since this conference was hosted by
IU twice, these records are further arranged by conference year. The records
contained in this series primarily include grant applications, conference programs,
and conference-related correspondence.
The final series, Administrative files (1970-2010), is arranged alphabetically and
contains primarily records on the GLBTSSS Alumni Association, annual reports of the
office, GLBT campus harassment incident reports, office-related correspondence, and
information on two GLBT themed classes that were taught at IU.
