Changes on college and university campuses have echoed changes in U.S. popular culture, politics, and religion since the 1970s through unprecedented visibility of LGBTQA persons and issues. In the face of hostile campus cultures, LGBTQA students rely on knowledgeable academic advisors for support, nurturance, and the resources needed to support their persistence. This edited collection offers theoretical understanding of the literature of the field, practical strategies that can be implemented at different institutions, and best practices that helps students, staff, and faculty members understand more deeply the challenges and rewards of working constructively with LGBTQA students. In addition, allies in the field of academic advising (both straight/cis-identified and queer) reflect on becoming an ally, describe obstacles and challenges they have experienced and offer advice to those seeking to deepen their commitment to ally-hood.

“Drs. McGill and Joslin created this exciting new resource for department advisers and student affairs staff as well as higher ed faculty and graduate students. Advisers in every area of campus must be aware of issues unique to LGBTQ students and how these issues affect students’ ability to persist to graduation. This important work offers LGBTQ historical foundations and holistic ways of providing informed services for LGBTQ students. It invites not only thought and emotion but also action to create an enduring connection that furthers student development.”

Ronni Sanlo, EdD - Founder, Lavender Graduation

“This text is certain to transform the advising field by centering on the needs and experiences of LGBTQA college students. Combining a deep focus on theoretical concepts with reflection opportunities and vignettes along the way to make connections to practice, the book is a must-read for advisers as they seek to support LGBTQA students on college campuses.”

Antonio Duran - Assistant Professor, Administration of Higher Education, Auburn University
