F-M campuses roll out rainbow welcome mats

Posted on August 13, 2012

By: Marino Eccher, INFORUM

FARGO – When Kara Gravley-Stack started working at North Dakota State University, advertising the school’s gay and lesbian support services was a surefire way to draw criticism from anti-gay quarters.

“I’d get messages coming to me saying, ‘I can’t believe you’re supporting this,’ ” said Gravley-Stack, NDSU’s director of diversity initiative, “and other things I’d rather forget about.”

That was a little more than a decade ago – around the same time sidewalk chalkings for Coming Out Week were defaced with death threats, and anonymous fliers covered in swastikas and hate messages popped up on local campuses.

Today, despite that ugly past – and in some ways because of it – Fargo-Moorhead colleges and universities are vocal in positioning themselves as safe havens for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered students.

“We just feel like it’s so important to put ourselves out there in a very visible way that we are welcoming to all students,” said Donna Brown, associate vice president for diversity and inclusion at Minnesota State University Moorhead. Read the rest of this entry →

Posted on June 15, 2012

By: Wendy Reuer, INFORUM

MOORHEAD – Motorists looking to park on the street here near the campuses of Minnesota State University Moorhead and Concordia College will not be able to do so without the risk of being towed or ticketed.

Off and Running screens at MSUM Feb. 17

Posted on February 03, 2011

A special screening of the film Off and Running will be held Thursday, February 17 at 7:30 p.m. in King Hall 110. Discussion will follow the screening with special guest Avery Klein-Cloud, Off and Running co-writer and star.

Off and Running is the story of Brooklyn teenager Avery, a track star with a bright future. She is the adopted African-American child of white Jewish lesbians. Her older brother is black and Puerto Rican, and her younger brother is Korean. Though it may not look typical, Avery’s household is like most American homes—until Avery writes to her birth mother. The response throws her into crisis. She struggles over her “true” identity, the circumstances of her adoption and her estrangement from black culture. When it seems as if her life is unraveling, Avery decides to pick up the pieces and make sense of her identity, with inspiring results.

Sponsored by MSUM departments of American Multicultural Studies, Film Studies and Women’s Studies with support from the Diversity Events Fund and Multicultural Affairs. Additional support from Concordia College Intercultural Affairs.
