The Pride Resource Center encourages Queer and Trans Black, Indigenous, People of Color (QTBIPOC), trans, nonbinary, femme, disabled, and other students with historically minoritized identities 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 some of these positions
