WRC Coordinator

Riah Safady, MSW




I am here to smash the patriarchy and be a leader in culture change on campus. The WRC is a place where my values align with the work, and I am grateful to work alongside dedicated and passionate students to offer support, education, advocacy, resources, and daily chocolate to the SOU community. Hope to see you in the W!

Student Director
Brooke Grover


Hello everyone! This is my 3rd year involved with the WRC. I started as a volunteer, then a staff member and now I'm the student director. This is my last year at SOU as a psychology major. People who know me know that I will fight the patriarchy, toxic masculinity and oppression any way I feel fit even if I’m fighting alone. A big part of my focus is making the programming I do as inclusive and accessible as possible so as many people who want to be involved can. I hope to see you all around this year.

Sean Carter


Sean’s my name, dismantling the patriarchy is my game. Creating a culture where people are encouraged to practice fun, comfortable, healthy, and safe sex is my goal. I may have a silly streak, but I am 100% serious about this work. Intersectionality or bust! Best, Sean Carter

Hi everyone, I am a 2nd year here at SOU majoring in Business with an emphasis in Hospitality and Tourism Management, minoring in International Studies and getting a certificate in Wine Business. I’m all about the outdoors, chocolate, and intersectional feminism. If you ever want to chat about any of these three topics and more, you can find me in the WRC. I also love food.

WRC Staff Member & SWAVE

Mattison Smith


Heyo! My name is Mattison, or Mattie, or Matt, it's your choice... choose wisely. My goal is to empower people to feel comfortable being themselves while providing intersectional, sex-positive and medically accurate information. I may have a larger than life personality but don't let that stop you from coming up and saying hello!
