Celebrating Pride Month
We are keenly aware that members of LGBTQIA communities continue to face many barriers and injustices in our society. During this month, we acknowledge the turbulent history of the LGBTQIA+ civil rights movement, while also celebrating the courage, strength and resilience of those communities in the midst of adversity and in the pursuit of equality. Throughout Pride Month, and all year, Pacific University stands in support of LGBTQIA+ communities and is committed to continuing to foster a more inclusive culture of equity on our campuses and in our world.
