LGBTQIA+ Learning Community

The Pride Scholars builds cultural and educational experiences for students and allies of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, and Asexual (LGBTQIA+) community by examining relevant voices, stories, and community experiences. We are committed to creating a supportive environment where students can explore their identities, build relationships, and thrive as they pursue their academic, career, and personal goals.
