Council on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity and Expression

The Council on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity and Expression (CSOGIE) promotes the development of social work curriculum materials and faculty growth opportunities relevant to sexual orientation and gender identity and expression, and the experiences of individuals who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or two-spirit. Read more about CSOGIE's charge.

Activities include the LGBT Caucus/CSOGIE Networking Reception, the Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity and Expression (SOGIE) Scholarship Award, and the CSOGIE Mentorship Breakfast for LGBTQ doctoral students and junior faculty.

Read the newly released CSOGIE study report, Social Work Students Speak Out! The Experiences of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Students in Social Work Programs.
