The Pride Resource Center is currently hiring student staff to support the coordination and implementation of programs and services offered to the CSU and Fort Collins community. We are looking for applicants for all positions to have skill in building positive relationships, working across difference, and contributing to inclusive environments and programs.

Pay rate starts at $12.32 per hour with the opportunity to renew the contract at the end of the year. 

The Pride Resource Center encourages Queer and Trans Black, Indigenous, People of Color (QTBIPOC), trans, nonbinary, femme, students with disabilities, and other students who are historically marginalized to consider working with us. We also encourage students with need-based work study or a willingness to apply for work study through the FAFSA application to apply, as work study is required for these positions.

  • Actively support the center and SDPS in advocating for accessibility, inclusion, and equity across marginalized experiences, including race, ethnicity, gender, sexual & romantic orientation, disability, documentation status, etc.
