What We’re About

The Queer Resource Center provides support, resources, and education to simultaneously uplift queer members of the community and teach the campus community how to support the queer community better. Crew members can be found throughout the day in the Queer Resource Center providing peer support and working with students, faculty, and staff to make Warren Wilson a place that is not only LGBTQIA+ friendly but also actively honors the dignity and value of people of all genders and sexual orientations. 

As a part of this essential community support system, you will also work to create Awareness and Acknowledgement programming centered around awareness days such as:

  • Transgender Day of Visibility 
  • GAYpril
  • Bi Visibility
  • Coming Out Day
  • Asexual Visibility 
  • Transgender Day of Remembrance

Student Leadership Opportunities

  • Crew Leader: Mentor and Support new crew members in their identities and through events management.

What You’ll Learn

You’ll spend years working alongside your peers with the mentorship of your supervisors.  Part of the experience of work at Warren Wilson is guided critical reflection, which helps ensure that you achieve both your own educational goals as well as our Common Learning Outcomes. These intentional learning outcomes distinguish our Work Program, giving it focus and relevancy that set it apart from a federal work-study or your average part-time job. 

Our Common Learning Outcomes:

  • Professionalism & Work Ethic: accountability, effective work habits, punctuality, dependability, time management, integrity, and commitment to the well-being of the community.
  • Critical Thinking and Problem Solving: working with available resources to creatively address issues and solve problems, and gaining confidence to make decisions.
  • Communication: the ability to convey and receive information effectively with intentionality, honesty, and confidence in both speech and writing.
  • Collaboration & Teamwork: actively collaborate with peers to achieve common goals, Distribute labor fairly, and hold each other accountable as committed members of a group.
  • Civic Identity: understanding your active influence within the community and how your decisions directly impact the work around you.

In addition to our Common Learning Outcomes, each crew in the Work Program identifies crew-specific goals for learning and performance. These are reviewed with you each semester. Your crew-specific learning goals outline skills and abilities your supervisor will teach you during the semester. 

Some of our Queer Resource Center Crew Learning Goals include:

  • Learning about and growing into your identity
  • Educating the community about queer history and the impact of Queer people on society
  • Hosting educational workshops teaching the community how to better support queer students in and out of the classroom.
