A Letter from the Pride Center
Greetings from the UGA Pride Center,
We wanted to reach out to let you know that the Pride Center is here to support and provide resources to our students while navigating these trying times. With the tragic and senseless attack on another LGBTQ+ night club, this time in Colorado Springs, we understand that this is impacting many of our students here at the University of Georgia and beyond. On behalf of the Division of Student Affairs and the Pride Center, we want to make sure all of our students know that they are supported. The Pride Center is here to assist. Please feel free to reach out to the office should you need anything.
We wanted to share some resources:
- The Pride Center is here as your family away from home. Please never hesitate to reach out to us with any questions throughout your entire UGA experience. Pride Center can serve as a resource hub and connect you with other resources on campus as well. Please consider contacting us if you ever need assistance. Our email can be found at Pride Center, and our phone number is (706) 542-4077. Please remember that we also have the Let’s Talk counseling program on Tuesdays from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM at the Pride Center.
- UGA’s Student Care & Outreach, within the Office of the Dean of Students, works with students who may be experiencing distress and/or difficult circumstances. They have a team of staff to assist you in connecting with and navigating resources and support services here on campus and in Athens. If you need anything in the coming days, please contact their office at 706-542-7774 (Monday through Friday, between 8:00am-5:00pm). You are also welcome to fill out an online form anytime requesting assistance at Student Care and Outreach.
- The staff at CAPS provide mental health crisis services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for urgent situations if you or someone you know is in distress. More information on these and other services can be found at CAPS Services.
- Health Promotion offers resources that include prevention, early intervention, and advocacy that helps students make informed decisions about their health and well-being. More information about their services, including a 24/7 Mental Health Support hotline, can be found at Health Promotion.
