The Rainbow Miner Initiative Journey
The Student Engagement & Leadership Center created the Rainbow Miner Initiative in response for the increasing need for LGBTQ+ visibility on campus. The ultimate mission of the Rainbow Miner Initiative was to create an environment at UTEP that embraces individual differences, sustains inclusion, and cultivate a campus that is free from bias. The vision and inspiration for this initiative were to ensure the UTEP campus is welcoming and inviting for all students, faculty, administration, and staff, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
The vision and mission of the Rainbow Miner initiative have expanded and continues under the new name of "Inclusion & Advocacy". Our dedication to providing programming and services for our LGBTQ+ Miner community is growing and our community outreach and partnerships are expanding so that we can provide diverse programming. We hope to fulfill these goals through advocacy, community building, and education.
