The Commission, later known as the President's Commission on Sexuality, Gender Diversity, and Queer Equality, examined issues such as homophobia and heterosexism at Emory, benefits for domestic partners, the University's Equal Opportunity Policy, LGBT studies curriculum, and the Office of LGBT Life. The Commission includee representatives from the alumni, students, faculty, staff, and administration. Subcommittees formed to address special issues as they arose.
