THIS DAY IN DAILY HISTORY

Integration of gay and lesbian issues cited for
curriculum

Sept. 17, 1991 — A University committee formed to study
the status of gay s and lesbians recommended the integration of
homosexual issues into the school’s curriculum.

University of Michigan”

To complete the report, the committee surveyed members of the
gay and lesbian community about their experiences on campus. They
also asked University members to describe their perceptions toward
the community.

The report also recommended modifying the diversity course
requirement to include issues of homosexuality.
