Founding director of LGBTQ Center begins duties today
April 4, 2016
Chief Diversity Office Valerie Hampton announces the appointment of Kelly Clark as founding director of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Center.
Clark has extensive experience as community safety program director and intergenerational programs director of the Gay Alliance of the Genesee Valley in Rochester, N.Y. She has also worked in alumni programs at the University of Rochester, as director of multicultural affairs at SUNY Geneseo, and as special assistant to the president for multicultural programs and affirmative action as well as Educational Opportunity Program counselor at SUNY New Paltz.
In her role, Clark will advance the diversity mission of the University by seeking to create an environment that is inclusive and supportive of sexual orientation and gender identity or expression.
“It really is the perfect time to build the center,” said Clark. “Unlike many other centers, President Stenger, Valerie Hampton and others who crafted the plan purposefully placed the center in the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. This will give me the opportunity to work broadly across the entire University, supporting students, faculty and staff as well as gaining support from alumni.”
Clark earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology and master’s degree in human development and counseling from the University of Rochester, and her EdD in executive leadership from St. John Fisher College.
She begins her duties at Binghamton today, Monday, April 4.
