sadowski_cover_webThe SOGI Collective – A dynamic group of queer and allied students who want to meet, read and discuss ways to create learning environments which are not only safe, but welcoming, embracing and empowering for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.

The SOGI Collective will launch reading our book, Safe is Not Enough: Better Schools for LGBTQ Students by Michael Sadowski. All are welcome. Books may be purchased at a highly subsidized rate of $15.

Please contact tefa.educ@ubc.ca if you are unable to attend, but want to be part of this exciting coalition.


The Teacher Education for All! project will build capacity for faculty, staff, and students in Teacher Education at UBC to create and provide an inclusive culture, work place, and learning environment with a particular focus on intersectional approaches to thinking about sexual and gender diversity and pedagogical approaches to recognize, and intervene to transform, the impacts of systemic discrimination.

The Teacher Education for All! project is funded by the UBC-ARC Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Fund. ARC Foundation is a private foundation established in 2009, based in Vancouver, BC. ARC supports projects that exhibit Awareness, Respect and Capacity in improving the status of those who are marginalized in society by sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity or financial status. Funding has also been provided by UBC’s Equity and Inclusion Office.
