Camp Qmunity 2021

A Queer Studies Summer Intensive

Camp Qmunity registrants

VCU’s Queer Research and Advocacy Center, known as the Q Collective, will hold a summer intensive on LGBT+/Queer Studies starting on July 1st, 2021. Throughout the month of July, we will meet synchronously and asynchronously to dive into histories and best practices in web technologies and design,  with attention to designing explicitly for diverse users and contexts. Featuring guest speakers with specializations in, among others, user experience design, LGBTQIA+ health information needs, inclusive web design, and the intersections of race, nationality, and the body, students will learn, study, and engage with mentors and scholars from throughout the VCU community. This interdisciplinary intensive culminates in a group project focused on building a virtual queer presence at VCU.

This competitive opportunity is open to all students with at least one more semester of full-time undergraduate coursework. Pell eligible, first-generation, and students who hold multiple marginalized identities are particularly encouraged to apply.

Applications for this program are now closed. Please email qcollective@vcu.edu if you have questions.
