Welcome and a message to our community
As some of you may be aware, Monae Roberts (they/she) has left their position as the Director of the LGBTQIA Resource Center. Monae began working at UC Davis in 2016 as a Program Coordinator in the Cross Cultural Center and moved into the role of Assistant Director of the LGBTQIA RC the following year. Much of their efforts have been focused on facilitating workshops for the campus community in order to raise awareness about systems of oppression and advocating for LGBTQIA students and staff within the university, most notably Co-chairing the Lived-Name & Gender Marker Task Force/Implementation Committee. Monae has fought for students tirelessly in their time here at UC Davis, but it is time for them to move onward to the next part of their journey.
During this transition, Crystal Knight (they/she) will serve as the Interim Director of the LGBTQIA Resource Center as we search for the permanent Director. Crystal is an activist and educator that fights for intersectional queer and trans liberation. Since January 2019, Crystal has served the UC Davis LGBTQIA+ community in multiple roles, including Student Services Coordinator and Assistant Director; all of which have centered advocacy, student skill-building, programming, campus collaboration, and connecting the greater LGBTQIA+ community to on-campus and local resources. Prior to their work at UC Davis, they served as a Social Justice and Community Co-Curricular Programs Coordinator at UC Santa Cruz. During their educational journey, they have earned a Master's Degree in Higher Education Leadership from the University of San Diego, and a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from UC Santa Cruz. She enjoys hiking in the greater Bay Area, dancing, and spending time with her dog Blu and her cats Oatmeal and Churro. Crystal can be reached via email at email@example.com.
