I've yet to be on a campus where most women weren't worrying about some aspect of combining marriage, children, and a career. I've yet to find one where many men were worrying about the same thing.

Tucson, AZ 85721
Krista is the Program Director for the Women’s Resource Center at UA. She was previously Coordinator of Student Advocacy & Assistance, and before that Coordinator of Judicial Affairs, serving both positions at UA. She completed her doctorate in Philosophy, Theology, and Ethics from Boston University in May 2011, with a dissertation focused on women’s negotiation of religious ritual. Krista’s undergraduate work in student development and her graduate work in feminist theory make her a strong Student Affairs advocate for issues of gender equity, and she is excited to contribute her skills and passion to the important work of the WRC. As Program Director, she advises the student organization F.O.R.C.E. (Feminists Organized to Resist, Create, and Empower), oversees the F.O.R.C.E. internship through which students can gain experience in program and event coordinating as well as activism, and she serves as a campus resource for gender equity and social justice issues.
Women's Resource Center Graduate Assistant:
Lauren is excited to begin in the fall of 2012 as the Graduate Assistant for the Women’s Resource Center. She is currently a master's student in higher education at the University of Arizona. Before graduate school Lauren enjoyed different teaching positions at high schools and elementary schools around Tucson. In 2011 she taught English and social studies at a local private school that serves some of Tucson's many refugee and immigrant children. Her primary role at the Women's Resource Center will be to coordinate the 2013 NEW Leadership™ Arizona conference, which seeks to educate Arizona's undergraduate students about the political process, and the importance of women's involvement in politics.
