Mission: The LGBTQ Student Resource Center (LGBTQ SRC) is a tri-institutional student fee-funded department. We strive to improve the campus climate for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer students by fostering acceptance and understanding through educating the campus community about issues related to this population and developing programming which unites diverse communities of people. Additionally, we provide support services and growth opportunities for LGBTQ students to realize their fullest potential.
The Assistant Director will be responsible for assisting in the creation of a supportive and welcoming environment for all members of the campus community, with a specific focus on sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression, and the intersection of identities. Additionally, this person will provide leadership, programming, outreach, support, and growth opportunities for students.
The LGBTQ SRC is a collaborative working environment where two professional staff members work closely with a team of student program assistants. The Assistant Director and Director collaborate in numerous ways to ensure that the office is meeting the needs of the diverse community; however, the Assistant Director has particular responsibility for the department’s training/outreach, support groups, management of educational and awareness-raising events (which are primarily coordinated by the student program assistants), and oversight of the office’s resources/resource library. Additionally, the Assistant Director is the primary staff member leading student staff recruitment, training, and supervision.
The University is particularly interested in applicants who have experience working with students from diverse backgrounds and a demonstrated commitment to improving access to higher education for under-represented groups.
