January 2011

GLOBES has had some turn-over recently in leadership and we now have slots on the Executive Committee open for service the volunteer executive committee.

Would you be interested?

Your participation on the executive committee would include attending monthly meetings during the academic year, assisting with events related to making our campus a more welcoming and affirming place for people who identify as LGBTQ.

Working with GLOBES is a great way to help make our campus more inclusive and to give back to the community. If you are willing to serve on the executive committee or know others that may be interested, please send us a message.

Graduate students please join us as well.

GLOBES MLK Day of Service

ladderOn Monday, January 19 at 9:00 on a cool morning, 20 UGA faculty, staff and friends of GLOBES turned out at AIDS Athens for the “Day On” of service. We trimmed hedges, painted trim, raked leaves, picked up trash, and enjoyed each others company in an attempt to contribute to the dream of Martin Luther King Jr. and our new president Barack Obama’s call for change. Mark your calendars now and join us next year. Special thanks go to our coordinator, Rick Gray! We also have extra T-Shirts available for $10. Contact us if you would like a shirt.
