Take Pride: LGBTQ Center gets new name

Our friends at the (now former) LGBTQ Resource Center are proud to announce they’ve changed the name of the space to the Pride Center. Interim Diversity Director Stacie Christian tells us this is part of a naming trend among colleges and universities looking to be more inclusive for all individuals who identify as gender minorities. She invites the campus community to stop by the Pride Center, Room 150 in the University Union (next to the Christie Theatre) and say hello!
