The LGBT Student Leadership is given by the Commission for LGBT People to a student who demonstrates a commitment to advancing lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender issues on campus.
When Jordan Miller became president of Lambda Student Union last year, it was a dying organization and most of its officers had vacated their positions. Miller has helped bring it back to being a vibrant advocacy group that supports LGBT students and brings quality programs to campus to educate the community about LGBT issues. A senior majoring in kinesiology, Miller serves on the Chancellor’s Commission for LGBT People and has helped bring speakers and performers to campus and community events, including Knoxville’s Pridefest, the Day of Silence, and National Coming Out Day. Miller is also involved in the Women’s Coordinating Council and Clinic Vols. After graduation, Miller plans to get a master’s degree in public health and exercise physiology.
