This March, the LGBT Resource Center will be hosting a week-long event called Pride-U-Cation. Formerly known as Sex Week, the theme and focus of Pride-U-Cation is about LGBTQ+ and allied students expressing pride in their identity through presentations and conversations that go beyond the 101 level or basics of LGBTQ+ identities.
This week is funded by Student Life and Services Fee. Special thanks to our friends Robyn Ochs, Angel Kalafatis-Russell, CAN Community Health, the Community Sexual Health Education & Research Initiative and our wonderful students!
