Kenyon is suspending its residential program and transitioning to remote instruction. Read more about Kenyon's response to COVID-19.
Unity House sponsors a number of programs aimed at making Kenyon more inclusive for LGBTQ+ students.
In response to the news that the federal government may shift its definition of gender, Unity House, along with campus partners like Gender Group, organized a panel discussion on transphobia and cis-allyship in fall 2018. The panel, which was comprised of student leaders, faculty and staff, attracted nearly 100 attendees.
Other programs have included a "cupcakes and condoms" event, where attendees designed condom wrappers for the ONE condom design contest and enjoyed a rainbow flag of cupcakes. Unity House was also an active organization that helped with planning both the Kenyon Queer and Trans Studies Conference and the campus visit from the National Center for Transgender Equality in spring 2019.
Unity House also hosted meetings and social gatherings where members of the campus’ LGBTQ+ community enjoyed their own social networks with queer and transgender peers.
Unity House has a number of upcoming events. To learn about all of the opportunities to engage with the house, please refer to the Kenyon events calendar and email the student managers to be added to the Unity House listserv.
