Recommended Core Values Here are 5 policy directions that can help shape a future U of R vision.
 

Summary: Recommended Core Values
Here are 5 policy directions that can help shape a future U of R vision.
1. Visionary Leadership
Make Regina and especially the U of R a leader in queer service provision, instead of a
chronic straggler. Encourage other schools to follow our lead.
Take a proactive, welcoming approach. Understand that harassment and discrimination
prevention is necessary but not sufficient.
Commit on paper with a guarantee for ongoing policy support.
2. Real Engagement, not Political Correctness
Know the difference between political correctness and real understanding of complex
issues. Understand how serious these issues really are.
Understand that, although LGBTI people are sexual beings, their needs go much further
than relationship rights and sexual hygeine.
Know the different kinds of queerness and recognize that their needs are different.
Remain open to new models of queerness as they emerge.
Know the difference between homophobia, transphobia, and heterosexism, and
understand that these are not the only problems LGBTI people face.
3. Human Services, not just Human Rights
Recognize the accessibility barriers that still impact most LGBTI people despite some
legal equality.
