The LGBT Center welcomes new programming and support staff!

Join us in welcoming new staff members to the LGBT Center team!

Stacie Steinbock joins the LGBT Center as Program Coordinator Senior, focusing her efforts on expanding the Center's services to students, faculty, and staff at the Health Sciences Center (HSC).  A familiar face on campus, she has worked previously as a sexual health educator for the Health Promotion Office and as an instructor in the College of Education and Human Development.  HSC students have benefited from her sessions at the annual Cultural Competency Workshop. Stacie will be splitting her time between the Center and the Health Promotion Office, and is a welcome addition to both.

Of her assignment in the LGBT Center she said, "As a trained sexual health educator, I'm eager to promote the growth of the LGBT Center's programming at the Health Sciences Center for students and staff.  Come find me in Room 210J in the A Building (the Medical Student Affairs Suite) to share training ideas or seek out student support!"

Darla Frazier has been supporting the LGBT Center this year, providing critical administrative support and scheduling assistance for the team.  Although Darla's fulltime position is in the Cultural Center, where she manages the business and personnel functions as its unit business manager, her commitment to diversity meant she was willing to also step in and help the LGBT Center this year.  Her love for students and her ability to juggle the busy schedules of both the Cultural Center and LGBT Center make her an especially effective member of both teams.

"It's my passion and purpose in life to love, encourage, and embrace the uniqueness in every person," she noted.

 

While her financial, accounting, and budgeting expertise is spread across all five of the diversity units that report to the Vice Provost for Diversity and International Affairs, Michelle Diallo has quickly become an indispensable member of the LGBT Center team and has brought a new level of fiscal organization to its work.  She reconciles the Center's budget, keeps track of community donations and corporate gifts, and oversees compliance with university guidelines. Michelle has returned to the area after previously living in Maryland and is thrilled to be living closer to her family and working for the university.

"I enjoy being part of a team that is passionate about supporting and empowering the community," she said of her work with the university's diversity units.
