Through his interaction with our staff and various communities, Adrian reinforced and affirmed our dedication to serving individuals from diverse genders and sexualities, and through those interactions, created intentional and human centric ways of moving this work forward. We are grateful for his work supporting our campus advocates, clinicians, and all those serving our larger community.” – Brian J.
