MEET THE STAFF!

¡ ¡ ¡ Bienvenidos ! ! !  I'm Matthew Antonio Bosch, Director of the GLC.  My professional background spans New York, Massachusetts, Minnesota, and North Carolina, including degrees at Harvard University and Cornell University.  In the community, I serve on the Alamance County Pride Board, have coached in multiple LGBTQIA athletic leagues, graduated from the Racial Equity Initiative for LGBTQ Leaders of Color, and was chosen for the 'Top 25 Latino Leaders Under 40 by the MN Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.'  A first generation college student myself, I strive to bring humor, enthusiasm, and realness into discussions around identity and its many intersections.  Excited to meet you, please feel free to stop by Moseley 211 anytime!

Hello, I'm from the great Oak Park, Illinois, which is famous for things such as 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 the Gender and LGBTQIA Center at Elon University!  I'm a graduate from 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 interested in learning more about the 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 WHATS UP HELLO My name is Becca 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 inter sectional and welcoming as possible. 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).

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. I am extremely passionate about equality and the elimination of gender and LGBTQIA stereotypes in our society. 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. Besides being a part of this staff, I love Beyonce, acapella, swimming, and eating.
