Enrolled at the University of Oregon in 2021, Chandlor Henderson is a non-traditional student currently in his third year studying Journalism with a minor in Computer Science and African Studies. In 2022, he was an intern in the Leadership Enrichment Internship (LEI) program. He now joins DEI as Campus and Community Engagement Special Projects Assistant, a student staff position.
Henderson arrived in Eugene, Oregon in the winter of 2015. He grew up outside of Washington, D.C. in the suburbs of Northern Virginia and needed a change. The Pacific Northwest seemed about as drastic a change as he could imagine, so he figured “why not?” While this transition was not without its challenges, Henderson found a supportive community.
