Meet the Change Agents of the LGBTQ Center
The LGBTQ Center introduced the Change Agent program in spring 2016.
Eight students, who represent a diversity of identities, experiences, and
campus engagement areas and interests, were selected through a com-
petitive application process to be the inaugural class of Change Agents.
Inaugural Class of Change Agents:
Sania Ali, Class of 2019
Sunny Calhoun, Class of 2020
Meli Fonseca, Class of 2018
Julius Goble, Class of 2019
Charlotte Lu, Class of 2020
Brianna Powell, Class of 2019
Natalie Valdes, Class of 2020
Charlotte Warren, Class of 2020
As Change Agents, students began their experience by attending the 2017
Creating Change conference, the pre-eminent political, leadership and
skills-building conference for the LGBTQ social justice movement, with the
LGBTQ Center. The conference was held in January in Philadelphia and
included a day of pre-conference sessions, two full days of workshops,
speakers, and more, and an opportunity to march in the Philadelphia
Women’s March on January 21. To view photos from our trip to Philadel-
phia, visit our Flickr album.
After returning to campus, Change Agents are tasked with using the
knowledge and skills gained to develop and implement programs and
initiatives to enhance inclusion of LGBTQ identities and individuals within
the campus and local communities. The inaugural class of Change Agents
have already begun their projects and will be working with the LGBTQ
Center throughout 2017 to bring their ideas to life. More information will
be shared as their projects continue to develop.
The LGBTQ Center expresses a deep appreciation to alumni donors who
made this Change Agent program possible. Please reach out
to lgbtq@wfu.edu with any questions about the Change Agent program.
