GLBT Faculty and Staff Network | GLBT Center
Select Page


Part of the mission of the GLBT Center is to provide ongoing support for GLBT faculty and staff on campus. To fulfill that mission, the GLBT Center coordinates the GLBT Faculty and Staff Network in order to provide an opportunity for GLBT faculty and staff to connect and form community, to supply informal and formal feedback about campus climate, to support and mentor GLBT students, and to connect with prospective GLBT faculty and staff members.


The Network meets once a month. Check our calendar for meeting details. If you would like to join the Network, please contact Preston Keith, Assistant Director of the GLBT Center.

If you are a prospective GLBT faculty or staff member and you would like to know more about NC State, being out on campus, the local community, or anything else, please feel free to email Preston Keith, Assistant Director of the GLBT Center, with questions. Also, if you would like to connect informally with GLBT faculty and staff during your campus interview, please feel free to contact Preston to schedule a meet-and-greet.

NC State Faculty Ombuds

The faculty ombuds is a confidential resource, a sounding board that also provides information, discusses University policies and procedures, and helps faculty resolve situations early. Faculty who have questions or would like to discuss a work-related situation confidentially are encouraged to contact Roy Baroff, the faculty ombuds.
