Jackson Stotlar (he/him/his or they/them/theirs) is the Outreach and Curricula Senior Specialist for the Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies. Jackson returned to WGSS in 2015 after receiving his MA from the Department in 2013. His areas of interest during his study were LGBTQ+ identity formation in the Christian right, ex-gay movements, and the intersections of feminism and business.
As Outreach and Curricula Senior Specialist, Jackson serves as the one-stop shop for curriculum design and development, programmatic assessment, and course scheduling. He also serves as faculty project manager for grant funded initiatives, and coordinates the department's outreach and engagement efforts to spread feminist ways of knowing in our communities. With quick wit and a big smile, Jackson strives to be open and friendly to everyone.
Jackson's enthusiasm for building connections between staff led him to serve as the President for the Association of Graduate and Professional Administrators (AGPA). He now serves as the co-chair of the College of Arts and Sciences Staff Advisory Council. Jackson is honored to be a 2021 recipient of Ohio State's Distinguished Staff Award, the highest University award bestowed upon staff.
When he’s not working to make WGSS even more awesome, Jackson enjoys playing games of all kinds, painting miniature models, watching football, grilling meats, and taking tree tours of the Columbus metroparks system.
