Eric Price, assistant professor of counseling, will discuss his research on the strengths, resiliency and support systems during the coming out process for LGBTQ individuals. Additionally, students and alumni have been invited to share their personal experiences of coming out.
The reception is hosted by CSUF President Fram Virjee and his wife, Julie, in partnership with Diversity Initiatives and Resource Centers.
