​​Positionality and responsibility. I believe I have power as a cis-gendered, white, and heteronormative researcher and U.S. faculty member, and I hope to use this power to bring attention to social issues that affect me and people I care about. In this case, I care deeply about my current and former students, many of whom are international students and identify as queer. With this goal in mind, I wish to center others’ stories, call attention to the findings through writing and presentations, and advocate for policy change. I recognize that I am not a member of the international LGBTQIA+ community. I share this as I want to be transparent about my identity. For any individuals who wish to participate in this project and have questions, I am open to talking with them before they agree to participate. I will ensure their confidentiality, and listen closely to their stories, experiences, and perceptions throughout this work. As the principal investigator for this project, it is my responsibility to uphold trust by maintaining confidentiality and security of the files and which will meet Middlebury’s Internal Review Board (IRB) standards.
