The Landis Collective envisions itself as a coalition of offices rooted in advancing principles of social justice. We approach our work intersectionally with an understanding that ability, class, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexuality, and other social identities operate in an overlapping, simultaneous fashion. Our offices collaborate regularly to provide the most thorough support for the communities we serve. Our individual missions differ, but we ultimately aim to increase campus awareness of how various forms of oppression impact communities, and provide tools to combat multiple forms of injustice and inequity. To this end we offer educational opportunities to build capacity, programs focused on developing awareness of domestic and global issues, and social events with a cultural focus.

Landis Collective offices:

  • Center for Service, Spirituality, and Social Justice (CSSS), Donna Hughes, Director
  • Office of LGBTQ Services, Erica Lawrence, Director
  • Popel Shaw Center for Race & Ethnicity (PSC), Vincent Stephens, Director
  • Women’s & Gender Resource Center (WGRC), Donna Bickford, Director
