Lauryn collaborates with departments, administrators, and student groups to develop and implement educational, intersectional LGBTQ+ programs at MIT. Lauryn joins us after working at Babson College as the Multicultural and LGBTQ+ Program Coordinator. There, her programs spanned campus wide events such as the Multicultural Festival and heritage month celebrations to providing group education on leadership and identity, safe zone trainings, gender expansive trainings, and club support. In her intern roles, she advised first-generation college students and developed and facilitated programming for Trans and Gender Non-conforming communities throughout the Greater Boston area. McNair holds an MSW from Boston College School of Social Work with a macro concentration in family, youth, and children and a BA from Colgate University with a double major in sociology and Caribbean studies.
