The group, whose acronym stands for People Respecting Individuality, Diversity and Equality, was established to provide a safe, supportive atmosphere for all students, including those looking to explore and define their sexual identity.
PRIDE holds weekly meetings and sponsors a number of on-campus social and educational events, including PRIDE week held each spring. Pride Week culminates in the ever-popular Drag Ball.
The group, which was once known as the Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual Student Union, holds their meetings in the University’s Pride Center.
