QSC Newsletter
Week 10 | Winter 2018

Welcome to Week 10! This is our last newsletter for the quarter. Thank you to everyone who came out and made our events a huge success, from the QSC Ball to the Bi Panel. Also thank you to everyone who worked with us on our advocacy with the IMA in the Student Senate. We really appreciate the support!

As usual, keep up with us on on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (@asuwqsc) to stay updated. We’ll see you in the spring for our Drag Competition!

Best of luck with your finals. Above all, remember to take care of yourself in the coming days. Have a good break!

Survey About A Proposed “X” Gender Marker On University Documents

The state of Washington recently established a new policy that allows one to mark their gender down as “X” on their birth certificates. If you have any opinions about the policy, particular in regards to how you would feel about a similar policy being established at the UW for university-related documents, please feel free to fill out this anonymous survey here. Please email us if you have any questions!
