Official Campus Policies

Campus policies prohibit discrimination against students on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

SafeZone

Safe Zone Stickers

Safe Zone stickers are available to all faculty to display on their doors or in their offices.  A safe zone sticker indicates that a professor is supportive of LGBTQ students.  If someone is displaying a sticker but behaving in a manner inconsistent with its display (e.g., promoting “conversion therapy” or telling you that your orientation is “wrong,” etc.), please report them to their supervisors. Please note that not all Safe Zone stickers look exactly like the one displayed here.

Indicating a Preferred/Used Name

Would you like the online system to indicate a name different from the one on your legal documentation (for instance, if you are a transgender student and your legal documentation still indicates the name assigned to you at birth)?  The LSC online system is set up to accommodate this.  Follow these steps:

  1. Login to myLoneStar
  2. From the Student tab choose ‘Personal Info’
  3. From drop down choose ‘Names’
  4. Choose “Add a New Name”
  5. Enter the name type as “Preferred” and enter the desired name
  6. Save the record

(If you ever need to change a preferred/used name, choose “Edit,” change the name, and save the record.)
