The Commission

The Commission for LGBT People is a body appointed by the chancellor to advise on planning, implementation, and evaluation of university programs, policies, and services designed to improve the status of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people on the Knoxville campus.

The Commission, in its role as an advocacy group, is committed to the protection and advancement of LGBT students, faculty, and staff at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

Welcome to the Commission for LGBT People! Join us at our first meeting on Monday, Sept. 10th, from 12-1pm in Hodges 605.

The Commission for LGBT People (CFLGBT) has created a survey in response the LGBTQ+ open forums that were held in Fall 2017. The CFLGBT seeks to understand the perspectives, needs, and experiences of LGBTQ+ employees at UT in order to (1) develop and implement programming to better meet the needs of LGBTQ+ employees at UT, and (2) advise Interim Chancellor Davis on how to begin addressing the needs of LGBTQ+ employees at UT. All responses are confidential and will be used solely for the two purposes outlined above.

Please see the link below to complete the survey, and share widely throughout your units. Also, please note the survey can be completed anonymously if the individual desires.
