Nolan Tesis

Nolan Tesis SSH’17 has received a prestigious 2016-17 Arcus Foundation fellowship. The fellowship recognizes his commitment to issues of diversity and his desire to make Northeastern a more inclusive environment. Nolan plans to create a greater sense of community for LGBTQ students of color through new resources, safe spaces, and other forms of support. Nolan’s faculty mentor is Dr. Moya Bailey, Assistant Professor of Cultures, Societies and Global Studies and Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies. Dr. Bailey, as well as an Arcus Mentor PhD student, will help guide Nolan during the course of the fellowship.

Nolan is designing, implementing, and evaluating a project that addresses the harassment, bullying, discrimination, and social isolation experienced by Northeastern LGBTQ students, particularly trans students and students of color. He is collaborating with the LGBTQA Resource Center, the John D. O’Bryant African-American Institute, and Office of Inclusion and Diversity. Nolan also worked alongside Lee West of the LGBTQ Student Center to host Northeastern’s Trans Day of Remembrance on November 19, 2016.
