The committee searching for ISU's chief diversity officer seeks input on the role of the diversity officer. The committee will use ideas collected through a series of town hall meetings to develop a job description.
Samuel (Sam) Brinton will speak about his first-hand experiences with conversion therapy and championing for state legislation to prohibit treatments of this kind. A bill of this sort has passed in the Iowa Senate but has yet to become law. Conversion therapy is a range of treatments attempting to change an individual's sexual orientation. It can include electroshock therapy along with other forms of physical and mental abuse.
