The Out List

Faculty & Staff that Identify with the LGBTQ+ Community

The Out List identifies faculty and staff that identify with the LGBTQ+ community at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. This list is a community-building resource for students to identify and connect with faculty and staff that identify with the LGBTQ+ community. We will create an Ally’s list but it is important for students to know folks that identify like them at this time.

By adding yourself to The Out List, you provide a supportive environment where students can feel seen, heard, and understood. Your presence on this list can make a significant impact on our LGBTQ+ community, fostering inclusivity and a sense of belonging.


Why Join?


Empower and Inspire: Your visibility as an LGBTQ+ identifying faculty/staff member can inspire and empower students, demonstrating that they can succeed and thrive in an inclusive environment.


Supportive Connections: By joining The Out List, you open doors for students to connect with role models, mentors, and allies who can provide guidance and support.


Create an Inclusive Campus: Your participation contributes to making John Jay College a more inclusive and welcoming space for everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
