Duluthian Nathalie Crowley was named a UW-Superior 2013 Woman of Color award winner last week.
She graduated UW-Superior in December 2011 and is currently a sociology graduate student. She was an active student during her undergraduate career and continues to be so as an alumna. As a student she was accepted into the McNair Scholars Program where she conducted her graduate level research project “Media Discourse of Black Fathers in Contemporary U.S. Society: A Case Study” under the advisement of her sociology associate professor Dr. Eri Fujieda.
Nathalie would go on to present her research at the annual UW-System’s American Multicultural Student Leadership Conference.
She also served as the president of UW-Superior’s Queer and Allied Student Union student organization, was the Diversity Director for the Student Government Association, and served as the co-chair of an LGBTQ support group at St. Cloud State University.
As an alumna, Nathalie has been an advocate for women of color, and was recently part of a UW-Superior educational student panel discussing how race and sexuality intersect. She has worked to improve the status and climate of women and underrepresented populations.
Nathalie is employed at PAVSA as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Program Coordinator and is the co-founder and facilitator of the Lake Superior Transgender Group. This group provides support, advocacy, and education to the transgendered population but also to their families. She has worked with organizations within our region to provide information on transgender health, equality, sexual assault, homelessness, access to education, discrimination and basic human rights.
