Hello prospective and incoming students,
Welcome officially to The University of Georgia. Staff and student leaders are committed to providing community, support, and developmental resources for LGBTQIA+ students and allies at the university. We will support and affirm every student inclusive of sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, and expression.
Our office is located in Memorial Hall in room 221 and we are open weekdays 8 AM – 5 PM. Our space includes a reception areas with a library of over 1000 books, current magazines, films and other resources; a student lounge equipped with a television, computers, printers, and lounge seating; and a quiet study with tables and computers. Through these spaces we aim to create an environment of advocacy, education, and support.
In addition to having a great space to operate in, we provided a variety of programs and services to increase awareness and foster understanding of issues related to sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. Some of The Center’s signature programs include: Lunch with Leaders, The Connect Conference, Pride Prom, Transgender Awareness Week, and Lavender Graduation.
The staff of the Pride Center is deeply committed to ensuring that all students, inclusive of their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression, have a place where they can feel, express, and be their true, authentic self while attending the University of Georgia.
