Helpful Suggestions!

1. My interest:

I'm really interested in learning about nonbinary individuals and how to be a good advocate on campus for their rights and needs.

2. Turning that into a question:

How can I make MiraCosta College a welcoming and affirming place for nonbinary individuals?

3. Identify the major key words in research question:

How can I make MiraCosta College a welcoming and affirming place for nonbinary individuals?

4. Brainstorm additional key words to use as search terms in databases:

MiraCosta College: classroom, students, staff, professors, Student Equity Department, academic counselors, nondiscrimination policy, preferred name in Canvas, preferred name on college records

welcoming and affirming: signs, college forms, respect, student success, help, processes

nonbinary individuals: they/them pronounstransgender, coming out, California Gender Recognition Act (SB 179), sexual and gender minorities, gender identity
