Gender & LGBTQIA Center - Staff & Volunteers

Our GLC is equipped with enthusastic and knowledgeable staff and volunteers to help you get to know and love the center! 


¡ ¡ ¡ Bienvenidos ! ! !  I'm Matthew Antonio, Director of the Gender & LGBTQIA Center (GLC.)  With degrees from Harvard & Cornell, my background spans across community colleges, 4-year public, and 4-year private universities. As Elon's Director of the Gender & LGBTQIA Center, I chaired the Presidential LGBTQIA Task Force, served as a founding board member for Alamance Pride, and completed 6 years on the national governing board of the American College Personnel Association. My decade in Minnesota included being Chief Diversity Officer for North Hennepin Community College and achieving Hispanic Chamber of Commerce's "Top 25 Latino Leaders in Minnesota." With intersectionality across race, class, gender, and sexuality, I strive to bring humor and authenticity to conversations around diversity, inclusion, and leadership on college campuses.  Excited to meet you, please feel free to stop by Moseley 211 anytime!



Hello, I'm Camilla Brewer from the great Oak Park, Illinois, famous for homes built by Frank Lloyd Wright, Ernest Hemingway, the voice of Homer Simpson, Iman Shumpert, and the church from Home Alone. As a second year in the Student Personnel Administration in Higher Education (SPAHE) master’s program, I'm excited to be the graduate assistant in Elon's Gender and LGBTQIA Center!  I'm a graduate of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and majored in Psychology and Women’s and Genders Studies with a minor in Sexuality Studies.  To grow in the field of Student Affairs, I'm learning more about identity development of underrepresented student populations and how to make their transition into higher education more effective and supportive. Also, I'm a fan of miniature objects, reading, and gushing over all types of animal videos. Additionally, my favorite place is the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, my favorite film director is Wes Anderson, and my current favorite band is CHVRCHES.

HEY WHAT'S UP HELLO My name is Becca Nipper and I am a senior here at Elon. I'm a Drama and Theatre Studies major with minors in Women and Gender Studies and Communications. I've been working at the Gender and LGBTQIA Center for three years and do a lot of community outreach work. My main goals in the GLC are to make it as intersectional and welcoming as possible. This year I organized events and programming for Trans Awareness Week.  When I'm not in the GLC, I like to go hiking and eat organic granola (I don't do either of these things but it makes me seem like a nice well rounded person doesn't it? I usually go home and eat goldfish and watch Grey's Anatomy...)



Hey, everyone! I'm a senior Cinema and Television Arts major from New York City with a passion for entertainment and education. In my spare time I enjoy watching Ru Paul's Drag Race, convincing my friends to chauffeur me to The Cheesecake Factory, and dismantling patriarchy behind the wonderful women leading the movement. If I'm not in the office, you might catch me on stage with Smooth Progression A Cappella, on television with Elon Tonight and ETalk, or in print with the Pendulum. Stop by the GLC to make use of all our wonderful resources. I look forward to seeing you soon!


My name is Katie Shannon & I am a Junior from Fairfield, Connecticut! I am a Communications Fellow planning to major in Cinema and Television Arts. It is my goal and the goal of the GLC to make sure people of all identities and backgrounds feel comfortable at Elon. I am also the Music Director of Shirley Tempos - Elon's newest all-female acapella group. This year, I helped organize events and programming related to Intersex and Asexual Awareness Week.  Besides being a part of this staff, I love music and eating.




Hello, Everyone! I'm Raechel Brunson, a sophomore double major in Creative Writing and Theatrical Arts, focusing in Graphic Art.  I am a native of Fayetteville, North Carolina.  This year I helped organize events and programming across campus for International Bi Day of Visibility.  Let's work together to further diversity education and equality both on campus and in the state of North Carolina in the coming year!  Come visit me working in the GLC!
