Is your department making changes and needs more room? Do you have paperwork that needs to be shredded? Learn more about how the Center of Southwest Studies can help you.
Chat with Archives Specialist, Gretchen Gray, about different types of college records and how to transfer them to the Fort Lewis College Archives – saving your department time, money, and space! As a bonus, enjoy a guided tour of the Center’s archives collection areas and learn more about this great campus resource.

Join us for lunch and a discussion about the graphic novel, Gender Queer: A Memoir by Mia Kobabe. Gender Queer is an autobiography that charts a journey of self-identity. This book is more than a personal story: it is a useful and touching guide on gender identity—what it means and how to think about it—for advocates, friends, and humans everywhere. Electronic and hard copies of the text are available for check out at the Reed Library.
Charlene Swansen, Reed Library staff, will facilitate a conversation about transgender, non-binary, gender non-conforming, and queer identities and experiences described in the text. Get to know your Fort Lewis College community by learning about and discussing meaningful issues that impact your co-workers, your colleagues, and you. Lunch will be provided for those who RSVP by June 22.
Complete the LGBTIAA2+ Pre-Survey before reading the books for the discussion.
