About The 14th annual Florida Collegiate Pride Coalition (FCPC) Conference , hosted at Stetson University, presents this year's theme, Inside Out, centered on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning (LGBTQ+) issues faced within society today. The conference focuses on disparities, including mental health, education, and holistic wellness both inside and out. Inside Out is designed to bring individuals from the Florida and southeastern region together to discuss issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community and empower individuals to become leaders and advocates within their own communities.
The Inside Out Conference Planning Committee is comprised of Stetson University students, staff, and faculty, collaborating to develop a theme that integrates all aspects of the conference experience that would prove to be most beneficial to the community. In addition, the conference allows Stetson University to bring together students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members of varying identities as speakers and presenters, and highlights issues within the LGBTQ+ community on an intellectual and personal level. This year we will foster these relationships and focus our efforts on recruiting students, faculty, staff and community members throughout Florida and the southeastern region as well as placing an emphasis on the Counseling Profession in an effort to continue education about the LGBTQ+ community to those in the mental health profession.
