Office: Landis House

Erica Gordon started as the Interim Director of the Office of LGBTQ Services at Dickinson College in July 2014.  Although she is new to this position, Erica is not new to College, having been a member of the Campus Life and subsequent Student Leadership & Campus Engagement team since 2008.  In that role, she worked with MOB, Student Senate, the Panhellenic Council, and leadership programs.  

Erica holds a B.A. in Sociology from Franklin & Marshall College and a M.A. in Counseling in Higher Education/Student Affairs from the University of Delaware.  While in graduate school, she had the opportunity to examine the relationship between sexual identity development and the formation of one's leadership capacity and also to work with the GSA on that campus.  

 Throughout her professional career and within her personal life, Erica has been passionate about exploring issues of sexuality and gender identity, social justice, intersectionality, and ally coalition building.  She is excited and humbled by the opportunity to forward the good work that has been done thus far by the Office at Dickinson.
