Queering University

Welcome to the Queering University Programme

The programme supports staff and students to develop, implement, share and sustain queer pedagogies and perspectives. It encourages teaching & learning, pastoral, and other practices that are inclusive of trans and LGBTQUIA+ people, and improves understanding in the classroom and wider university settings.

News and events

Trans Day of Visibility 2024

Trans Day of Visibility (31st March) marks a time to celebrate our trans community and to raise awareness of ongoing challenges to trans inclusion. Every member of our community can make a difference in building a more trans-inclusive University. Here are four key ways to get involved.

Guidance and resources

This library draws together some key resources to support those wishing to engage with queer pedagogies, and LGBTQUIA+ inclusive practices.

The Pronouns Pledge

Taking our pronouns pledge makes it simple to engage with inclusive best practice on pronouns, and to build a movement of people taking these steps together.

Pronoun Badges

The Rainbow Taskforce bulk-purchased pronoun badges in order to make them available to staff and students. You can collect an individual badge, or request a set of badges for a group or event.

LGBTQUIA+ Inclusive T&L and Queer Pedagogy

Access support and guidance to develop your pedagogical practices, and connect with others on the same journey.

Queer & Trans Pedagogies Learning Circle

The learning circle brings us together to discuss, develop, and share best practice relating to trans-inclusive teaching and queer pedagogy.

Names at Warwick

We've worked with teams across the University to address issues with the use of legal name data. Find out how to update chosen and legal names (staff and student systems), how and when name data should used, and how to report any issues.

LGBTQUIA+ Staff Experience Insight

The programme is working with Social Inclusion to further our institutional understanding of LGBTQUIA+ staff experiences at Warwick.

LGBTQUIA+ Student Experience Research

The programme is seeking a better institutional understanding of LGBTQUIA+ students' experiences at Warwick.

Anonymous Question Service

We recognise that there are barriers to asking about LGBTQUIA+ inclusive and queer practice, and are committed to breaking down those barriers.

Trans Community Support Group

If you're a trans person, or are questioning your gender identity, this community support group offers you the space to discuss trans & gender identity issues in a relaxed environment.

Guide to Being Trans at Warwick

This guide brings together information on the processes, policies, services, and groups you might want to access as a trans person at Warwick.

Living Positively

We're supporting everyone to live, work, and study positively at Warwick. Access support for HIV+ staff and students, information on HIV testing and prevention, and develop understanding and allyship.

Solo

Connecting estranged students with support and community, educating supporters, researching students' experiences, and improving support, with the ultimate goal of improving estranged students' experiences at Warwick.
