  • Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Dr. Jorgenson (he/him/his) has been director of the Gender & Sexuality Resource Center for 8 years. Under his leadership, UW-Eau Claire has been ranked #3 nationally and is currently ranked #1 statewide for LGBTQIA+ inclusion and student experience (for a third consecutive year). He chairs the Queer & Trans Action Committee (QTAC) and Bias Incident Reporting Team (BIRT) and teaches in the Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program. Jorgenson's approach to social justice advocacy emphasizes both the acknowledgment of inequity, as well as the importance of celebrating communities whose identities are too often denigrated and marginalized.
