Trans Resources

Trans Resources Coordinator

The QRC's Trans Resources Coordinator serves as the lead organizer for Trans Empowerment, Resistance, and Resilience (TEMPRR) Days, serves as the point person for resources and services for students who identify as trans, and works to educate campus community members about transgender people, their unique needs and their contributions.  Additionally, the Trans Resources Coordinator meets with students by appointment to discuss navigating gender identity struggles and the university system. Appointments can be made by e-mailing psutrans@pdx.edu. (Our Trans Resources Coordinator also coordinates Interpersonal Violence Resources.) Our entire staff is trained on trans issues and can all act as a general resource for our trans students. The Trans Resources Coordinator is our in-house go to person for all trans related questions and help.

The QRC space is also welcoming and open to students who are looking for more information on how to support or learn more about trans, transgender, and gender variant people in their lives. The staff is always happy to speak with folks about their questions. Please drop by the space, call or email, or make an appointment!

SHAC's Trans Health Advocate

The Center for Student Health and Counseling's Trans Health Advocate is Nick Walden Poublon. Nick can provide information about trans specific resources with SHAC and AETNA Student Health. With questions or to make an appointment to discuss student healthcare, contact Nick at 503-725-2800 or nwalden@pdx.edu

Advanced Preferred Name Option (for Trans Students)

The QRC is excited to offer this advanced preferred name option for trans students. By meeting with a QRC staff person to complete a simple form, you can update your preferred name on student ID, in class rosters, and in other campus data systems. 

*Please note that PSU is required to retain your legal name for official academic record in the student information system. 

For more information or to make an appointment, please call 503-725-9742, or email the Trans Resources Coordinator.  

Name/Pronoun Advocacy

Each new term, students can be stressed out about classroom rosters and having teachers and students respect their name and gender identity.  The QRC is offering advocacy for students whose name or pronoun is different from what the University may provide to faculty for Classroom Rosters. By filling out the information in the form below, our Trans & IPV Resources Coordinator will email instructors to advise them of your name and pronoun along with a way to contact us if they have further questions.

Fill out the Name/Pronoun Advocacy form!
