Resource Centers Overview:
The Cantú Queer Center is one of six Resource Centers under Retention Services and Campus Life, which includes the African American Resource and Cultural Center, American Indian Resource Center, Asian American/Pacific Islander Resource Center, El Centro: Chicano Latino Resource Center, and Women's Center. The Resource Centers serve as safe and respectful environments that nurture and support interaction among undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff and the community at large. The primary goal of Resource Centers is the promotion of awareness and social justice through high quality programming and leadership development, and the creation of an atmosphere where learning is embedded in academic, social, and cultural programming. In addition to programming, Resource Centers and its staff provide a myriad of services including: advocacy for students, referrals to campus and community resources, advising, counseling and crisis support, academic support, and support for retention.
Cantú Queer Center Overview:
The Lionel Cantú Gay Lesbian Bi Trans Intersex Resource Center (Cantú Queer Center) exists to provide an open, safe, inclusive, intercultural space, promoting education about all genders and sexualities, and empowering self-exploration of these identities. The Cantú Queer Center supports same-gender-loving students, faculty, staff, and alumni, as well as families, friends, and the entire campus community. The CQC serves as a resource to LGBTQQIA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual) students by providing opportunities for leadership and personal development, and by creating programs and services that work to eliminate heterosexism, bi-phobia, and gender-identity oppression. The Cantú Queer Center strives to develop an atmosphere of acceptance and well-being from which the campus community can fulfill the academic mission of the university.
Under the general supervision of the Cantu Queer Center Director, the Trans Educator serves as the nexus of support for Trans-identified students and the integration of education and awareness for the stakeholders and campus community. Major functional areas of responsibility include coordination of training programs for campus community, bias incident response management, case management, student advocacy, and develop visibility for trans identified people on campus. The Transgender Educator works closely with varying divisions/ units to identify and intervene as early as possible with trans students whose behavior suggests the need for support services. The incumbent is readily accessible to faculty, staff, students and will also support the activities, programs and services associated with the functions of the Resource Centers.
