¡ ¡ ¡ Bienvenidos ! ! !  With degrees from Harvard & Cornell, my professional background spans community colleges, 4-year public, and 4-year private universities with degrees from Harvard, Cornell, and University of Pennsylvania (in progress.) As GLC Director, I chaired the Presidential LGBTQIA Task Force, co-founded Alamance Pride, and served 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!

 

Becca Bishopric Patterson
Assistant Director for the Gender & LGBTQIA Center (GLC)
336-278-7285 / bbishopric@elon.edu

I serve as a visible campus leader, coordinator, and advocate for gender topics while providing education around gender-based violence. I've been involved in gender equity and anti-violence work since 2010. I've presented at state and national conferences on gender violence, survivor advocacy, Title IX, primary prevention, peer education and student activism. I'm committed to approaching this work from an intersectional lens and have attended many trainings on supporting LGBTQIA communities, including Campus Pride's "Stop the Hate."

Outside of campus, I enjoy spending time with friends, family, and animals, enjoying the outdoors, learning about alternative healing modalities, and advocating for social justice.

cbrewer5@elon.edu / 336-278-6127

Hello, I'm from 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. I hold a Master's in Student Personnel Administration from UNC Greensboro & Bachelor's from UNC Chapel Hill in Psychology and Women’s & Genders Studies w/minor in Sexuality Studies. I'm passionate about identity development of underrepresented student populations and how to make transitions into higher education more effective and supportive. I'm a fan of miniature objects, reading, and gushing over all types of animal videos. My favorite place is the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, favorite film director is Wes Anderson, and favorite band is CHVRCHES.

Matt Reichenbach
Student Assistant for the Gender & LGBTQIA Center (GLC)

I am from Reston, Virginia (the burbs outside of DC) and a sophomore Journalism and Media Analytics double major with a Spanish minor.

When I'm not working at the GLC, I host a fashion corner on ETalk, serve as Assistant Style Editor on The Edge magazine, and am a member of the Interactive Marketing committee on SUB. In my spare time I love watching RuPaul’s Drag Race, socializing, and convincing everyone around me that Red Robin is a chain to be reckoned with.

My main goal for the GLC is to showcase outstanding individuals in the LGBTQIA and help improve the attitudes that LGBTQIA students have towards each other here on campus!

I am excited to help plan all the events and I am excited to help make Elon a more accessible and comfortable campus for all students. Come visit me in the GLC!
