LGBT Campus Center names Javier as director
The Division of Student Life has appointed Gabe Javier as new assistant dean of students and director of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Campus Center.
Javier is currently the interim assistant to the dean of students and senior assistant director of the Spectrum Center at the University of Michigan.
“We are excited to have Gabe join our division,” says associate dean Argyle Wade, chair of the search committee. “He brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and national leadership on LGBTQ issues to our campus.”
Priorities for the new director include transitioning the LGBT Campus Center to a new office on the first floor of the Red Gym, fostering community among LGBTQ students, and reviewing the center’s educational and support programs.
“The amount of involvement by all aspects of the campus community on this search was remarkable,” Wade says.
Javier will begin on Aug. 1, 2011.
