Women's and LGBTQ Resource Center
Christopher Jorgenson recently was appointed coordinator of the UW-Eau Claire Women's and LGBTQ Resource Center. He has been a member of the center's staff since July 2010. Jorgenson provides resources and referrals for women as well as members of the LGBTQA community on campus. In addition, he plans and implements events consistent not only with national observances that promote equality through diversity (National Coming Out Day, Love Your Body Day, National Day of Silence, Women's History Month, etc.), but with UW-Eau Claire's equity, diversity and inclusivity initiatives. He is a member of UW-Eau Claire's LGBTQA Advisory Board, serves on the Commission on the Status of Women, is a women's studies affiliate, and coordinates Peer Haven, UW-Eau Claire's premier LGBTQ peer mentoring program. Jorgenson received both his bachelor's and master's degrees from UW-Eau Claire. He received a bachelor of arts degree in English literature, with minors in women's studies and music, in May 2010, and a master of arts degree in English literature and textual interpretation in May 2012.
