LGBTQ2IA+ Student Advising
Hello! My name is Kyle Weitz (he/they) and I'm the Sexual and Gender Diversity Advisory. I'm here to support LGBTQ2IA+ students as they navigate school and their identity.
As someone who came out during university, I know how important community and supports can be. Please feel free to reach out if you'd like to know more about resources and supports at the school or in the community, are looking for someone to listen or just want to chat!
Here are some of the ways I can assist you:
- Personal matters
- Gender and sexuality
- Homophobia and Transphobia
- Feelings of loneliness and isolation
- Mental health supports
- Navigating the university system and culture
- Finding community and belonging
- Getting connected with peers, resources and supports
If you’d like to connect with me for one-on-one confidential support or advising, you can email me at KWeitz@UoGuelph.ca.
What is an Advisor?
Wondering what the difference is between the Sexual and Gender Diversity Advisor and the Counsellors in Counselling Services?
An Advisor is a staff member that provides information about the many supports and resources available to students. The Advisor can guide students and assist in navigating the university system. This includes direct support as well as facilitating connections with other campus or community services, explaining and clarifying institutional policies, and describing overarching expectations of students.
Students can also access Counselling Services in the Vaccarino Centre for Student Wellness.
