Trans Resources Coordinator
The QRC's Trans Student Resources and Retention Coordinator (TReC) serves as the point person for resources and services for students who identify as trans, non-binary, gender non-conforming, and/or questioning as well as students who are intersex. The TReC serves as the lead organizer for Trans Empowerment, Resistance, and Resilience (TEMPRR) Days, and works to educate campus community members about transgender people, their unique needs and their contributions. Additionally, They meet with students by appointment to discuss navigating gender identity struggles and the university system. Appointments can be made by e-mailing email@example.com. 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, staff, and faculty 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 us!

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.
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.
