How queer is Radboud University and the Radboud Medical Center (Radboudumc)? How and where do we encounter queer people, ideas, and spaces at Radboud that go beyond a gender binary? And where do we celebrate diversity, fluidity and a bit of rainbow sparkles?
In collaboration with the Radboud Young Academy, Dito! Nijmegen, voor LHBT+ jongeren, and the Halkes Women+ Faculty Network, we discussed these questions in three short panels.
With diverse speakers from Radboud, ranging from Bachelor and Master students to professors, DEI and support staff, we explored and discussed the following three main topics:
Panel #1: The status quo of queer-related policies at Radboud
Panel #2: The implications of queer students and teachers in the classroom and teaching environments
Panel #3: The connection between Radboud and queer nightlife in Nijmegen’s urban context
We want to get an overview of what policies, networks, and initiatives are already there, but also, what still needs to be done to provide physical and institutional safe spaces for queer-identifying people at Radboud.
